"I'm an Army veteran who has a traumatic brain injury, major depression, and anxiety. Before I got involved with horse therapy life just felt like a dark road I was just wandering on.

My local VA service officer suggested going to horse therapy at Heroes & Horses. The horses have shown me how to be a happier person & opened my eyes to how much I love horses.

I tell people all the time they should go to horse therapy because it is the best thing ever. I am so glad I get to work with Hot Rod." —John S.
