Equine Services for Heroes
Veterans are NOT charged for their riding lessons. KFTHC thanks you for your service.
Equine Services for Heroes (ESH) was developed by PATH, Intl. and is a program of Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies for veterans and active duty soldiers.
Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies, (EAAT) have been found helpful in assisting wounded warriors reconnect with their families and communities and to rise above psychological and physical challenges through the age-old relationship between horse and human.
Participants are supported by volunteers as needed. Volunteers support riders through horse management and through encouragement and facilitation with activities.
It has been proven that military helping military is an additional benefit of the program. Everyone benefits from this experience.
KFTHC’s Equine Services for Heroes Program offers Therapeutic Riding, Vocational Horsemanship, “Families Ride Together”
and Volunteer Opportunities.

Veterans from the VA Hospital, Leestown Road.
KFTHC has been cooperating with the VA Hospital to provide Equine Assisted Activities for Veterans in their residential program since 2018. Margaret Feeback, CTRS, and her staff bring groups of veterans each month to engage in therapeutic horsemanship and riding. Local veterans and volunteers come for support and to share the fun.
