Since 2012, when Horses4Heroes launched Operation Free Ride for returning combat veterans, more than 20,000 men, women and children have discovered horses, horseback riding and the healing power of horses.
“These programs are opening our wonderful world of horses to men, women and their children who have sacrificed so much on our behalf. With thousands of troops returning home, programs like Operation Free Ride are important to PTS sufferers, Wounded Warriors, caregivers and their families,” said Sydney Knott, president and founder.

Horses4Heroes is seeking sponsors to defray costs of its summer activities. All proceeds support operations of the Horses4Heroes Community Equestrian, which is home to 20 horses, and a barnyard filled with goats, rabbits, chickens, ducks, two miniature donkeys, a lamb, Alpaca, Llama and a miniature steer. The non-profit provides low-cost recreational and instructional activities and free weekly life skills workshops for veterans with PTS, domestic violence victims, recovering addicts (teens and adults), at-risk youth and foster children. Current sponsors include South Point Hotel & Casino, Hollywood Charity Horse Show, Wrangler National Patriot, and Nutrena. Horses4Heroes is the only two-time winner of the American Horse Council’s Time to Ride Challenge, an initiative to see who can introduce the most newcomers to horses in 100 days.
