Healing Our Veterans is an experiential 4-part docuseries created to show the world the healing power of horses as they help veterans transform Post-Traumatic Stress into Post-Traumatic Growth.


This film speaks to the need of mental health as it brings to life the journey of 9 veterans completing a transformational process that liberates them from the demons in their head, allows them to intrinsically connect to a new purpose, and ultimately find peace of the heart and mind. 

This mission of this documentary is to bring hope to those struggling with the effects of trauma and to help those who support our veterans understand what they experience at a deeper level.
