Horses Healing Heroes

Breaking Free offers an alternative approach to the orthodox therapy session. Through twelve weeks of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (commonly referred to as horse therapy), veterans work in small groups with an emphasis on trust and teamwork. However, Individual sessions are available upon request.  Breaking Free is a relaxing escape from life's pressures and is an excellent way to refocus. Every individual interprets his or her experience differently and Breaking Free strives to cater to veterans' specific needs in any way possible.  The program is available to any veteran, free of charge, as it is fully funded through private donations from the local community.
