The definition of Odyssey is a long journey full of adventure; a series of experiences that give knowledge or understanding to someone.
Our vision is to create a safe community environment where veterans, first responders and their families can increase their knowledge of self, horses and others through Equine Assisted Learning (EAL.)
Who can benefit?
Any veterans or first responders (and their families) who just want to belong be in a safe community environment and those struggling (not limited to) with the following:
● Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD)
● Military Sexual Trauma (MST)
● Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
● Spinal chord injury
*Autumn Trails Stable does not treat or diagnosis participants.
Each Tuesday evening, the barn will be open at 5:30 p.m. for veterans, first responders & their families to gather and connect in the presence of horses. At 6:30 p.m., an introductory session will be offered for beginners and then at 7:30 p.m. an advanced session will be offered for those who have participated in the program before. PLEASE NOTE: Registration paperwork is required for ALL veterans and first responders (even for the open barn.) ALL family members MUST sign a release for Autumn Trails Stable AND Finally Home Farm (a legal guardian MUST sign a release for family members under the age of 18.)
What does an introductory session look like?
