Veterans Telling the Real Stories and Healing Their Way Home

Horses and Heroes is not about pointing fingers or creating a political firestorm.  It is a documentary series, which will help military personnel and veterans find a new way to cope with the physical and emotional challenges brought into their lives by war.  Equine Therapy does not involve drugs nor lying on a couch and spilling their guts to a therapist.  What it does do is help them find new ways to see and react to their emotional triggers.  It helps their bodies remember how it used to work.  It can't replace what was lost, but it can give them the confidence to see that they are more than the sum of their body parts.  Horses and Heroes will give veterans and military personnel the information they need to find alternative healing solutions, which can help lower the suicide rate.

It will provide the dual benefit of also providing jobs.  We will be hiring veterans already in the entertainment industry as well as opening the door for those who are looking for a new career. 

Horses and Heroes will create a greater awareness healing benefits of Equine Therapy for civilians, military personnel, veterans, and their families not only for those currently serving, but also for those from previous wars, who never addressed their issues. Horses and Heroes can’t fix the system nor will be it is a cure all.  What it will do is show that there are alternatives, which  more effectively help them heal their way home.  They can't go back and make a brand new start, but they can start from the now and make a brand new end.

This is the video we shot to grandfather Horses and Heroes into Section 181 of the Jobs Act.
