The horse has always been a strong symbol of strength and freedom, but what we don’t realize is the power of the language in their hoofbeats. HOOFBEATS FOR HEROES is a non-profit corporation set up to serve our soldiers, veterans, first responders and their families. We will soon be opening our first operation at BLORA Ranch on Fort Hood in Belton, Texas to:
- Provide a horse ranch designed to help our Heroes ride home and rebuild their foundation with services such as relaxing horseback rides, riding lessons, horsemanship clinics, playdays, pony rides and equine therapy.
- Create an outlet for service men and women after deployment as well as first responders and families.
- Help veterans and first responders in transition.
- Establish a new foundation and goal setting.
- Affordable activities for the military community.
We will also be doing special events for Water Fest, Santa’s Depot and the Nature In Lights Program. We would be delighted to put on a special birthday party for the kids, a getaway for adults, or any other event that you would like us to facilitate, and all profits realized will be put back into the program to provide reduced and/or waved fees for those suffering from PTSD and other conditions that can benefit from the therapeutic affects of horses.
