HORSES AND HEROES
Horses & Heroes Programs For Veterans
CTR is committed to changing lives for the better and that includes our veterans who have served in any of the armed services. We pay special attention to the rehabilitative needs of veterans with emphasis on physical and social healing.
Through a variety of horse-related activities (adaptive riding and basic horsemanship) veterans are able to increase their strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, confidence, trust and communication skills. Veterans may be at any stage in their healing process and may be working on physical, emotional, social cognitive and/or behavioral issues while in the care of staff in the VA Maryland Health Care System.
PTSD, traumatic brain injury, military sexual trauma, substance abuse disorder, and/or loss of limb can be addressed through CTR’s program for veterans.
Please contact Daniel Vigus at 410-642-2411 ext. 22917 (Perry Point) or Taylor McGiveron 410-605-7000 ext. 51292 (Baltimore) to participate.
