Horses4Heroes is a Las Vegas-based, national non-profit organization dedicated to empowering youth, adults and families and enriching their lives through deeply discounted recreational, instructional and morale-boosting health and wellness programs that emphasize fun and safe activities with horses.
Our large and growing national network includes more than 300 facilities in 45 states plus Canada. Through programs link Operation Field Ride, we have given thousands of free horseback rides and we are introducing a brand new audience to the world of horses.
Other heroes (nurses, special education school teachers, etc..) pay just $25 for a family membership. In addition, we serve at-risk youth, foster children and teens, victims of domestic abuse and violence, Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress and other in our communities who need a hand up, not a hand out.
