There is no way to adequately thank the men and women that sacrificed so much for our freedom and safety. But we can offer them a second chance - an opportunity to be successful members of a supportive community! The staff and volunteers at Rumshock Veterans Foundation are working to do all we can to offer veterans the opportunity to improve their physical, mental, and emotional health as well as reconnect with society through meaningful activities.
We work with PATH Intl Certified Riding Instructors, Equine Specialists in Mental Health and Learning, and mental health professionals to customize equine assisted activities and therapies for our participants.
