Our Military Program is committed to enhancing the lives of our military men and women by providing services to active, separated, and retired service members.
Our Military Program incorporates ground work with the horse as well as mounted activities. Participants are also welcome to take advantage of any of Horses Help's other programs such as Hippotherapy, Equine Facilitated Learning, Equine Facilitated Mental Health, etc.
As our way of saying 'thank you', all Military Program sessions are at no cost to the participant.

Cost: As our way of saying 'Thank You", all Military Program classes are at no cost to the participant.
Full scholarships enable National Guard, Reserve, Active Duty, and Retired to join small groups of fellow soldiers in horsemanship and horseback riding classes. Classes are assisted by fellow veterans and civilians with a special connection to service members and veterans.
All applications are reviewed for possible participation. Once an application is received, a tour of the facility is scheduled for you. If class space is available, an intake assessment is scheduled.
Physicians release: All Riders particpating in Hippotherapy or Adaptive Riding must have a physician's statement indicating there are no contraindications for participating in an equine program.
Transportation: Transportation assistance is arranged through Phoenix area veterans service organizations. Available upon request.
Active Duty or Veterans Benefit Counselors or Healthcare Providers who would like more information are warmly invited to contact Horses Help for an information packet, to schedule a tour or to arrange for one of our coordinators to attend an event.
