Outside of general fun and skill building, the organization is passionate about mental health, supporting veterans, and building strong connections. Las Vegas residents can take advantage of programs for anti-bullying, victims of abuse, self-esteem, empowerment, and their Ride2Recover program. Additionally, Horse 4 Heroes has developed a program called Back in the Saddle geared toward Veterans who struggle to transition back into their day-to-day life. 

The Benefits of Equestrian Activities

Interacting with horses has numerous benefits. The advantages range from physical to emotional. Beyond increased physical activity while interacting with horses, the environment is low-risk and therapeutic – perfect for improving one’s health. 

Equestrian programs decrease blood pressure and increase self-esteem, patience, and trust. The studies have varied from school children, those with severe health needs, people suffering from psychological distress, and more. The benefits are present among the wide range of people and conditions; therefore, engaging with horses in environments like those at Horses 4 Heroes will help everyone.

How Horses 4 Heroes Supports our Community

The programs at Horse 4 Heroes are built on four core values: responsibility, independence, discipline, and empathy. Their dedication to these values is shown in their free workshops for struggling veterans, first responders, domestic abuse and violence victims, recovering addicts, foster children, and at-risk youths.
