For more information, email camps@horses4heroes.org.


Horses4Heroes operates the Horse4Heroes Family Equestrian Center in a rural northwest neighborhood.  Here, at the non-profit’s headquarters and flagship facility, Horses4Heroes offers affordable horseback riding lessons for all ages and riding levels, camps, birthday parties, field trips and free workshops for veterans with PTSD, victims of domestic abuse and violence, recovering addicts, at-risk youth and teens and others in the community who need a hand up, not a hand out.


Horses4Heroes camps are open only to Horses4Heroes members.  Membership is free for Active Duty Service Members, First Responders, $25 for School Teachers and Nurses and $50 for Friends.  Membership information is the web site, www.horses4heroes.org.  Camp is $150 for five days, plus a one-time, non-refundable $50 registration fee.  Daily rates are available as well.


Teen volunteers, ages 14 to 17, are invited to serve as volunteer student counselors.  For information on volunteering and earning community service hours, email camps@horses4heroes.org.


“Our camps are technology free and offer good old fashioned fun,” said Sydney Knott, president and founder of Hoses4Heroes.  “Campers get to use their imaginations, learn all about horses and farm animals, make new friends, create treasured memories, become more confident and leave camp with a powerful sense of accomplishment.  ‘I did it’, is something we often hear!” said Ms. Knott.


Proceeds from all paid activities, donations and sponsorships goes toward the feeding and care of the horses and farm animals, as well as scholarships to allow even deeper discounts for camps, lessons and free workshops for veterans.


In 2014 and 2016, Horses4Heroes won the American Horse Council’s Time to Ride Challenge, a national initiative to introduce newcomers to horses.  Horses4Heroes is the only repeat winner of this challenge and the only national equine non-profit that owns its own horses and uses those horses, including retired, donated and Feed Lot rescues, every day in programs that serve local heroes and the community.  The organization’s large and growing national network of equestrian centers in 45 states and Canada offer affordable, sometimes free, recreational, instructional and health and wellness programs for all ages, all riding levels and in all disciplines.  For more information on all programs and activities, email events@horses4heroes.org, visit www.horses4heroes.org or call 702.645.8446.
