Description: Located in Belgrade, MT - This is an intensive (40) day program. Although applications for 2020 has closed this is a noteworthy organization to keep on file and to apply for 2021 sometime in early March. Please take the time to extensively review their website. This is a phenomenal organization and one, that should you accept this challenge, you will never regret or forget! Below is their mission statement and approach.
Heroes and Horses offer combat veterans an alternative solution for defining and approaching their physical and mental scars—a solution that does not include prescription medications, or traditional psychotherapy, but rather the opportunity to use tools to redefine their purpose, rediscover their inner strength, and maximize their potential by taking ownership of their lives for the first time since leaving service.
This is not just about healing “battle wounds,” it is about looking at what is going on with each person. We address the physiological components by creating a whole-food eating and physical fitness routine, then we work on the mind through an interactive daily leadership course—all happening simultaneously. You cannot just “treat” one part of a person and expect them to thrive, you must look at how everything works together.
