The Scott Vallely Soldiers Memorial Fund and The Stand Up America U.S. Foundation are now supporting The Valor Equine Therapy Service Herd 2 Human Program for our veterans and first responders.
Equine Assisted Therapy has shown to be very effective in treating patients, including combat veterans and first responders, with PTSD, depression, anxiety, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, as well as behavior disorders.
Statistics show that horses calm the nerves, lower blood pressure and, in general, relieve stress. Our veterans and first responders will be under the watchful eyes of trained equine professionals.
To provide a resource for the ever-growing demand for professional assistance in mitigating the damaging effects of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or traumatic brain injury (TBI) suffered by military veterans, law enforcers, firefighters and EMT responders. Equine Therapeutic Programs (ETPs) are supervised by professional equestrian instructors who teach wounded veterans and first responders how to interact, react, and care for a horse.
