Veterans recovering from traumatic experiences also benefit from therapeutic riding at Lift Me Up!
In coordination with the VA Medical Center, Wounded Warrior Project and PATH's Horses for Heroes, Lift Me Up! provides lessons that assist veterans coping with a variety of conditions including traumatic brain injuries, physical injuries, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Often these conditions are compounded and horses have a unique way of connecting with the rider to help them work through emotional and physical issues.
The Back In the Saddle (BITS) mission is to assist military personnel and veterans through equine-assisted learning and therapeutic riding. Our BITS program is tailored to address specific issues faced by wounded and traumatized military personnel, while also providing a supportive and therapeutic environment for their families and loved ones.
