Therapeutic Non-Profits

ACTT Naturally’s equine facilitated programs for veterans and their families, and first responders offer experiential time with horses. Our hands-on exercises work to build trust, compassion, empathy and mutual respect. These tools help reduce anxiety and increase confidence. The programs are safe and uncomplicated. Our OTTB’s enjoy the work, and along with the veterans gain a renewed sense of well-being. This program puts everyone in the Winner’s Circle.
