Under the guidance of highly experienced and trained personnel, LTR provides quality equine-assisted activities and therapies for wounded military and veterans here on the beautiful grounds of the Morven Park Equestrian Center. As a PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Center, LTR is proud to offer the Equine Services for Heroes program at no charge to the veteran.
In response to the growing need for therapies for war veterans, the Equine Services for Heroes program uses equine-assisted activities to aid wounded warriors in recovery. Participants in the program have often been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or traumatic brain injury (TBI), both of which can have global effects on the physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and behavioral health of the veteran. With the help of our equine partners, we provide these individuals the opportunity to regain valuable skills lost due to injury or trauma in a safe and supportive environment.
“Appreciating the power of the horse to change lives is our goal,” said Path Intl. Past President Dr. Paul Spiers, “and PATH Intl. wants to provide positive change for these very special lives. Our service personnel have fought to preserve our freedom, and, for many, at a very dear cost. We must be certain that if our wounded service personnel and veterans need and want this kind of help, they will get the best PATH Intl. has to offer.”
