H3 Horses Healing Heroes is a 501c3 nonprofit for wounded warriors past and present. Through equine assisted psychotherapy (EAP) the horses are used as a living tool to facilitate healing from combat trauma, post-traumatic stress injury (PTSI), traumatic brain injury (TBI) and military sexual trauma (MST) that our heroes received while serving their country.
Donations Donate now to help our wounded warriors and their families. They have given so much for us, now lets give back to them.
Our vision is that every wounded warrior have access to these services, at no charge to them. Horses can help warriors with Post-Traumatic Stress
Injury, Traumatic-Brain Injury, and Military Sexual Trauma regain their
emotional strength and confidence. Experts say horses feed off emotions
so in order to control the large animals; the warrior has to learn to
take control of his/her own emotions. From the beginning the veteran is
introduced to the horses with hands on ground activities and
exercises. Learning to take care of the them, brushing their coats,
walking them or just touching them can help break the bonds of
isolation. Experts say this can help alleviate anxiety and build confidence for dealing with life's problems.
