Equine-Assisted Veterans Services
Serving those who serve.
The goal of PATH International Equine Services for Heroes® is to make mounted and unmounted equine-assisted services available to any veteran or military personnel within or near their home communities. PATH Intl. certified instructors trained in serving veterans have built referral relationships with federal and non-federal veteran-serving organizations in all U.S. territories.
Equine-assisted services of all types have proven effective for veterans and active service personnel. Some participate in therapeutic horsemanship including riding and driving, while others benefit from healing their trauma through psychotherapy or strengthening their bodies with physical therapy incorporating horses.
Depending on the type of service in which a veteran participates, there are various physical and psycho-social benefits.
