Welcome to Horses Joining Forces!

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit community organization that provides Equine Assisted Coaching (EAC) programs to active duty military, veterans and their families, as well as members of the community who are battling with invisible wounds, including Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD/PTS).

A nice group of people determined to better mankind.Karen
This experiential approach enables the individual to learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with the horses. EAC is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach that has an incredible impact on individuals. Horses Joining Forces is unique in that we combine the benefits of horseback riding with ground work, using the horse as a therapeutic tool and team player to improve the quality of life for the client.

EAC is particularly effective with veterans and other victims of trauma who tend to avoid “talk therapy” because their memories are so painful. Also, many vets with PTS do not want to admit they have a problem due to the fear of being stigmatized by mental illness and career related repercussions. They often refuse the armed services typical offer of a series of individual counseling sessions. This is where EAC can be especially helpful.

EAC has many benefits. Here are some of them:

  • Improves Self-Confidence/Self-Esteem
  • Increases Ability to Bond/Trust
  • Elevates Body/Self-Awareness
  • Supports Impulse Control
  • Expands Peace and Joy
  • Decreases Anxiety and Stress
  • Improves Concentration and Focus
  • Helps to Develop Appropriate Boundries
