In today's episode we speak with Patrick Benson of War Horses for Veterans. Patrick is an Army Vet who struggled to readjust to civilian life after returning from Iraq. He tells us about the highs and lows and what lead him to found War Horses for Veterans.
As Patrick explains on his website:
"War Horses for Veterans is the premier horsemanship, networking and personal growth program in the U.S. We are a Kansas City based nonprofit that brings combat veterans from across the country together in a safe and peaceful environment.
Our 3-4 day programs are designed to teach the basics of horsemanship and create a network that will provide outlets for other opportunities and friendships. We use a combination of learning to work a horse, creating new networks and Equus/Life coaching to help each veteran with their own personal growth.
There is no cost to the veteran. Veterans may return as often as they like, as long as they bring another combat veteran."
