WHO WE ARE

OUR VISION

We are a group of military professionals and horse professionals working to maximize opportunities for our Service Members and Veterans to engage with horses of all breeds, disciplines and riding levels. 
We facilitate relationships between the civilian sector, the Department of Defense and the nearest VA organization.
This nationwide network of equine therapy program providers and horse rescues was founded in 2010 by Bridget Kroger, LTC US Army (Retired). Equine-assisted therapies were instrumental in Bridget’s PTSD recovery process. Her belief that all Wounded Warriors need the experience of these age-old healing practices led her to institutionalize a program and coordinate a team of medical professionals, horse professionals, military professionals and farm operators across the U.S. to deliver equine-assisted therapies to veterans and service members.
