Veterans Helping Horses
The VETS team is comprised of returning combat veterans and their family members who participate in a six-week program designed to forge connections and build bonds of trust with horses that have been rehabilitated through our program.
Veteran coaches provide peer-to-peer camaraderie and assistance to other veteran participants — helping them gain the trust and respect of the horse.
This group has an exceptional commitment to community and service — lending their time and talent to helping other veteran service organizations and local community groups.
Just in the past few months they have:
- Participated in Amplify Austin on behalf of LT Lov
- Held a silent auction to provide BBQ for the Cpl Chad O Foundation for PTSD, and
- Collected over 140 pairs of new pajamas on behalf of Peaceful Dreams for local shelter kids.
The April donation of $1,000 from Radiant Helping Hands will be used to sponsor one veteran family through the six-week Veterams Program. This includes the cost of care for the horse, program fcilitation and a community lunch each week.
