We are proud to announce that HeadWinds Therapeutic Horsemanship is partnering up with our good friends at Horses of Warriors by offering the use of our facility and our therapy horses. It's a win-win!
Jamie Franklin, founder of HOW (Horses of Warriors), has been a friend of ours for many years and has always been there for us when we needed help. He, a US veteran himself, has had a passion for horses and a deep understanding for how horses can facilitate real healing of PTSD and other issues that plague our American veterans. 
It will be an honor to work along side him.

He asks for nothing for what he does, except the satisfaction of helping others. Located in Sonora California, his vision is to eventually have a Thrift Store and to schedule related events to raise money for our veterans.
