Larry Johnson, President of the Majestic Hills Ranch Foundation Board, was presented a check for $1,000 for the Heroes on Horseback program. In 2010, with the addition of the second outdoor arena, MHR established our “Heroes on Horseback” program. They made the commitment to bring the same benefits of equine assisted activities and therapies to our Veterans who have sacrificed so much to keep us safe as they offered to our children and young adults with special needs.

Veterans may return from combat with negative self-esteem and an immeasurable amount of guilt that they take back with them to their “ordinary” lives. Unable to deal with the stress they have been exposed to, often they have nowhere to turn and talking about things just seem too unbearable. While traditional therapy includes medication and talk-therapy, complementary therapies may now include equine assisted activities, including therapeutic riding.
