Founded in 2015 by Monmouth University alumna René Stone, Serenity Stables, From Combat to Calm, is a nonprofit farm in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey, that provides what’s known as equine-assisted therapy to U.S. veterans returning from deployment with a broad range of physical, psychological, and emotional disabilities. It’s part of a growing trend across the country aimed at using the unique temperament and intuition of domesticated horses to help veterans work through myriad developmental and physical disabilities, including the severe mental health challenges that stem from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
