Mission
To provide a unique environment and opportunity in which Veterans can Recuperate, Recreate and Reintegrate into society and give them a new perspective so that they can reach their life goals. Sharing our experience, our strengths and hopes, we work together creating a new path to peace and balance. Here at the Chariot we offer a calm and supportive atmosphere for both women and men Veterans. Our program is tailored to each individual participant - Ultimately this program will be self-sustaining by the Veteran participants themselves as they complete the skills required for the different phases of the Program. This will allow Veterans to become program instructors and under the volunteer mentor-ship of working staff and volunteers raise and train the horses that will become program horses for future Veterans coming in to the program. An alternative to traditional physical, mental, and emotional healing
