Description: Carlisle Academy’s Veterans Program provides services for Veterans and Service Members. Carlisle Academy’s goal is to give those who have served our country an opportunity to learn or rediscover equestrian sports and successfully master a new skill, while providing a foundation for positive experiences and improved well-being. First piloted in the summer of 2008 under the PATH International (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) Equine Services for Heroes Program to assist veterans in their recovery and reintegration back into their communities.
Carlisle’s Veteran Program has now expanded into farm-based wellness workshops, equine-facilitated wellness programs, yoga, professional education, and inclusive sport programs. All services are free to veterans to the extent that funding is available through the Carlisle Charitable Foundation, and/or supported through funds from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
