BraveHearts provides innovative equine-assisted activities and therapies in support of children, adults, and our 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 disorder, substance abuse, and other issues associated with a return from active service. Veterans learn horsemanship skills and techniques on how to gentle a horse. A team of BraveHearts staff and veterans completed a 20-mile trail ride in Washington DC. The ride brought awareness of the 20 veterans who commit suicide each day in the U.S. while also raising funds for the BraveHearts veterans program.
