Welcome to Serenity Stables, From Combat to Calm. We are a 501(3)c Non-profit Organization specializing in Equine Therapy for Veterans. We are excited you are here and would love to introduce you to the benefits of Equine Therapy.
Our mission is to provide equine therapy that supports psychological health and improved quality of life to service members, Veterans and their families.
There is a growing interest in equine therapy supporting the psychological health and family relationships of service members, veterans and their families worldwide.
For a growing number of returning warriors, there are both invisible and visible wounds suffered from the traumas of war. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, anywhere from 11 to 20 percent of veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Our therapy is “collaborative, joining the efforts of licensed clinical counselors and horse professionals who work side by side with veterans and horses to address individual treatment goals.”
Horses are social in nature, respond to non-verbal communication and extremely sensitive, providing different opportunities for veterans to interact with and relate to our horses which in turn allows them to explore further the way they are coping in life.
