Did you know that at this time there are an estimated 200,000 horses in the US designated as unwanted? Tragically, many are slaughtered when they can be re-trained and re-homed to help serve our communities especially for veterans and those with special needs. There are 50 million people with disabilities, but only about 54,000 are currently able to benefit from equine assisted activities and therapies. Let's get ROARing!
