The purpose of Horses for Healing Heroes is to provide a place for Recovery and Recuperation and Renewal. People who suffer trauma, injury, and emotional or psychological affliction often respond to working with horses far more effectively than other kinds of therapy. Horses have been used for this purpose for over 3,000 years. Amazing, and even what many call “miraculous” results, frequently occur when working closely with horses.
Our charity, Patriotic Hearts, has been assisting US veterans and their families for decades. Now, with 20 acres and 18 horses provided explicitly for our use, and in lieu of the Covid 19 Pandemic and the many American heroes who risk their lives daily to provide our medical and physical needs, we are now expanding our mission to assist all First Responders: Fire, EMTs, Paramedics, Doctors and Nurses, and Police. We also want to include handicapped adults and children, as resources and qualified personnel are available.
We want the Horses for Healing Heroes property in the Tejana Ecological Preserve, near Murrieta, CA to be used by school children, and clubs such as the Boys and Girls Clubs, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, etc. We will be developing educational classes on our property in Art, Music, Dance, Writing, Ecology, and Agriculture.
