We are honored to have been invited to offer our Equine Assisted Healing Program for veterans and families in cooperation with Horse Lovers Park in Phoenix, Arizona. Equine therapy is being utilized throughout the nation to help veterans cope with and heal from the emotional trauma they have endured. Veterans returning home sometimes struggle with adjustment issues,  grief and loss, PTSD, relationship challenges, and other problems as a result of serving our country. Families of veterans often need help in their own reactions to these problems. We offer monthly equine assisted groups where veterans and their families in Phoenix, Arizona can have an alternative type of healing experience. 

Participants have rated their experience with over 97% excellent satisfaction. The other 3% ratings were still above average. We think you'll agree. Veterans and family members can immediately apply their experiences in the arena to their lives today and have new choices for healing and change. No horse experience is necessary in order to participate. Find more information about these services for veterans on this flyer and call to sign up today.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy was developed by a veteran, Greg Kersten, who understands the potential for having horses help people in healing emotional wounds. Bringing these services to veterans at Horse Lovers Park has been a vision of the park President, Ross Libonati, who is also a veteran. Both the therapist and equine professional are experienced professionals and certified in providing equine assisted psychotherapy and learning services.

If you are a veteran or a family member of a veteran and would like to be on the email list for notice about our ongoing equine therapy services to veterans, you can sign up using this form:
