OPERATION MACK - HEALING WITH HORSESOur Operation Mack - Healing With Horses program addresses the special rehabilitative needs of military personnel recovering from injuries sustained in the line of duty, such as traumatic brain injuries, amputation and PTSD. The specific objectives of the therapy vary based on each rider’s individual needs.
Physical benefits include:
• stretching of spastic muscles
• increased range of motion in the joints
• improved respiration and circulation
• reduction of abnormal movement patterns
• sensory integration
The psychological benefits often include:
• improved self-confidence
• development of patience
• emotional control
• sense of normality
• decreased anxiety
OPPORTUNITY FOR AMERICAN VETERANSThanks to the DAV Charitable Service Trust we are able to offer therapeutic horseback riding to military veterans with disabilities such as traumatic brain injuries, amputations, visual impairments and spinal cord injuries at no cost to the veteran.
One participant told us that therapeutic riding has “increased my enjoyment of life."
