  • US service member who is looking to learn about life after the military. If life is just not right, this is just right for you.
  • If you wish to help our veterans, and you have not served in the military, we can use you too. Our group therapy is limited to veterans only, but you can help with the class room, learn about horses, and help interact with the equine portion of the class. Training is required for equine interaction.
  • If you are a veteran, and would like to volunteer your time, please register here. As a veteran, you will be invited to sit in the veteran only group therapy where we privately discuss issues facing veterans today.

Registration is closed

By Appointment only, you must register to attend. 

Blackhorse 4 Heroes is more than just horse training, we teach about life after serving. 


July 4th we will hold a BBQ at the farm, we may drive, may chat, may just enjoy some burgers and hot dogs.  Just come out and chill at the carriage house.  All are welcome, veterans and non-veterans alike.  Bring some chips and drinks if you like.

But Why Horses?


Horses communicate through body language. This affords veterans a calm, non-judgmental platform where horse and driver work together. Problems seem to disappear when exposed to the farm.


This is a veteran designed, and supervised program.
