What is Horses for Heroes?
Cowboy Up! is a unique horsemanship, wellness and skill-set restructuring program based in Santa Fe, NM free to ALL Operation Iraqi Freedom & Operation Enduring Freedom-Afghanistan Operation New Dawn veterans and active military, (both men and women), especially those who have sustained PTSD, combat trauma, or physical injuries during their time serving our country.
From day one, veterans are hands on with our horses beginning with groundwork and progressing to riding, as well as participating in other aspects of ranch life, including working cattle and more importantly experiencing the camaraderie with cowboys who are veterans themselves.
Sharing our experience, strengths, and hopes we give veterans a new and vital mission where they can recuperate, recreate, and reintegrate into the community. We believe that Horsemanship is Leadership and by assisting veterans through the way of the horse and cowboy culture, they are able to support their journey, integrating mind, body and spirit.
We are honored to be endorsed by the New Mexico Cattle Growers Association, (WRCA) and NM Department of Veterans’ Services.
