This year all proceeds will go to support the Victory Therapy Center, a local non-profit organization that provides services to improve the quality of life for individuals through equine therapy. Their program, “Horses for Heroes,” provides equine-facilitated psychotherapy and therapeutic riding to meet the needs and improve the lives of military veterans and their families. Using the relationship that clients form with horses, therapists address many common challenges for veterans who have suffered trauma in the line of duty. This type of therapy also helps veterans adjust to their post-war lives, both physically and emotionally.
