Wellness Therapy 

  • The role of natural environments in alleviating stress responses is well-documented. Military Veterans also benefit from equine therapy as a means to help them cope with PTSD. Our farm is home to horses with the appropriate temperament to do this kind of work. 

  • There is a great opportunity for horticultural therapy (HT) via our organic garden.  Horticultural therapy can play a unique role in the recovery of veterans from physical, emotional, and spiritual injuries.  Vocational HT settings allow participants to experience independent work, problem solving and learning to follow directions.

  • The therapeutic environment at Caring Corral is designed to provide a place for these treatments and services.

Equine Training

  • Our staff will teach individuals the importance of successful barn management, and how to properly care for horses.  We will also teach tack and how to maintain a healthy barn.
