We exist to bring hope, joy and unlimited possibilities through the healing power of the horse. Through our programs, we connect horses with people as a catalyst for wellness. Everyone has the opportunity to discover healing horsemanship at BraveHearts. We serve military veterans, veterans’ families, children and adults. All veterans and family members are served at no charge. 

BraveHearts offers diverse programming from groundwork to drill team, therapeutic riding lessons are offered year-round. Physical, Occupational and Speech therapy is provided using hippotherapy (the movement of the horse) as a treatment strategy by a licensed therapist. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is implemented by a licensed social worker or psychologist.

“Working with the Mustangs has been a rejuvenating experience for my mind. As a result of this interaction, I have no longer needed a significant amount of pharmaceuticals. I have regained my sobriety and for the first time since the military I have thought about what the next 20 years of my life have in store for my family and me. Operation Mustang has forever changed me and I am forever grateful.”

–Mitchell Reno, US Army Veteran
