Horsefeathers provides high quality Equine Assisted programs including horsemanship/adapted riding programs for children and young adults with special needs, and hippotherapy and psychotherapy services. Following a conversation with the vocational rehabilitation counselors from the Lovell Veterans’ Administration in North Chicago, the organization decided to explore how it might also assist the local military veteran population. Veterans served typically have barriers that prevent them from successfully obtaining and maintaining employment (mental health issues, physical impairments, age, criminal backgrounds, poor and sporadic work histories, etc.) Funding supports the placement of veterans at the Horsefeathers facility. The veteran receives a work environment and experience.
