Since 2007, BraveHearts has been nationally recognized for providing equine-assisted services to veterans from the northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin areas.

BraveHearts has the largest equine-based program in the nation for military veterans comprised of riding, ground activities, carriage driving and gentling wild mustangs.

All services are offered at no cost to the veteran and one member of his/her family/caregiver. Services are provided through individual and group lessons. BraveHearts partners with local VAs to provide innovative, recreational services using horses.
