Serenity Stables From Combat to Calm


renebarn_0014Our mission is to provide equine therapy that supports psychological health and improved quality of life to service members, Veterans and their families.


Serenity Stables, From Combat to Calm was established in 2015 when founder Rene Stone looked to provide horse-assisted activities to Veterans returning from deployment with a broad spectrum of physical, mental and emotional disabilities. A lifelong equestrian, Rene discovered the benefits of equine therapy recovering from her own traumatic brain injury suffered while training with one of horses.

Serenity Stables, From Combat to Calm is a 501(c)3 organization to meet the increasing needs of the Veteran Community, and now serves as Monmouth County’s premier facility providing horse-assisted activities for the special needs of Veterans.

We provide horse-assisted activities to Veterans with a broad spectrum of developmental and physical disabilities, mental health challenges, visual impairments and traumatic brain injury, all stemming from the sacrifice they gave to this country, and injuries, seen and unseen they continue to endure…


In recognizing it’s commitment to excellence and maintaining industry standards, Serenity Stables has professionals trained and certified through EAGALA on Staff. EAGALA, the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) is the leading international nonprofit association for professionals incorporating horses to address mental health and personal development needs. Their vision is that every person worldwide will have access to these therapy services known as Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Equine Assisted Learning.
