Veterans Program

          In 2017 we started a program for Veterans with PTSD.   We are using a method of EAP and EAL (Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Equine Assisted Learning) to provide healing experiences. This program is facilitated by a licensed mental health professional, a certified horse specialist, and a group of horses, in a very private, safe, and non-threatening environment. Participants learn about themselves and their relationships with others by partaking in these activities with the horses. Then, observations, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are discussed. The emphasis is on “learning by doing”, rather than just talking about problems.

Get involved!

If you are a licensed therapist or a veteran interested in participating in our program, please call us at 808-937-9717 or email us at hope@heartranch.org. We look forward to meeting with you!
