Our Warrior Herd program is accepting referrals & applications for NO COST Equine

Assisted Therapy Groups for Veterans. These non-riding groups are face-to-face,
delivered in person at our Purcellville facility in Northern Virginia. In partnership with our
therapy herd, our team helps Veterans to tackle some key mental health issues related
to their military service experience. The non-riding approach is ideal for helping Veterans
develop and improve techniques for being mindful and present, managing stress and
anxiety, communicating clearly, setting boundaries, and enhancing resilience. In addition
to skills building, these groups encourage self-exploration and self-efficacy.


• Groups run for 6-week periods
• Sessions last 75 to 90 minutes and are held once weekly
• Max of 6 participants per group
• There is NO COST for Veterans to participate
