Saratoga WarHorse Program

Classes are held at

Aiken Equine Rescue 

Equine Rescue of Aiken has opened its facility at no charge to Saratoga WarHorse.  The veterans are paired with our off-the-track Thoroughbreds for classes held in Aiken.  It is a win-win situation for veterans and our off-the-track Thoroughbreds by providing an effective alternative method for healing emotional wounds and offering our horses meaningful work after their racing careers have ended.

Saratoga WarHorse assists veterans who are suffering from the invisible wounds of war by providing a 3-day confidential, peer-to-peer, action based, off-the-track Thoroughbred assisted experience that initiates immediate and long lasting change, at no cost to the veteran.  As documented on ESPN, CBS World Evening News and an award-winning documentary by HRTV, this is a program that works.

By utilizing the silent language of the horse, a mutual trust and profound bond is established that goes beyond verbal communication.   Veterans have described this Connection Process as “life changing beyond words.”  It is making an impact on reducing depression, post-traumatic stress and suicide rates.

Please help financially support Equine Rescue of Aiken in its mission to rescue horses and to make our facility and horses available to Saratoga WarHorse. 

Equine Rescue of Aiken needs you to help with the costs that we incur for the upkeep of our rescued war horses and the use of the Equine Rescue of Aiken facilities that we have set aside for use by the Veterans and the Saratoga WarHorse facilitators during this experience.

The Aiken Community in all walks of life, including the Horse Community, welcome these Veterans into Aiken and thank them for their service.
