“Appreciating the power of the horse to change lives is our goal,” said Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH International) Past President Dr. Paul Spiers, “and PATH International wants to provide positive change for these very special lives. Our service personnel have fought to preserve our freedom, and, for many, at a very dear cost. We must be certain that if our wounded service personnel and veterans need and want this kind of help, they will get the best PATH International has to offer.”
PATH International Equine Services for Heroes assists military veterans through services provided by PATH International members and by providing leadership and guidance for equine assisted activities and therapies.
To accomplish this mission, PATH International centers connect with Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers and Clinics, as well as individual veterans. Veterans of any age can benefit from the program and by being involved with equines.
