BraveHearts provides innovative equine-assisted services in support of children, adults, and military Veterans. Located in Harvard and Poplar Grove, Illinois, BraveHearts has the largest horse program in the country for military Veterans; all Veterans receive services at no cost. Veteran participants may suffer from post-traumatic stress, substance abuse, and other issues associated with a return from active service. Veterans learn horsemanship skills and techniques on how to gentle a horse. This grant supports BraveHearts’ Trail to Zero suicide prevention ride in Ft. Wayne Indiana as well as “green medicine” therapy for Veterans at Windy Knoll Farm.
