Henry’s Home: Conroe sanctuary building friendships between veterans and horses

CONROE, Texas (KTRK) — It’s a unique program that builds friendships between veterans and first responders with horses. It’s helping them cope with issues like PTSD.


Horses & Heroes Equine Everything Program

Horses & Heroes Equine Everything Program offers a Retreat into nature [in the middle of the woods], working at our sanctuary, spending as much time as you want with our Rescued horses and other farm animals. You can spend your time with our horses on the ground learning to care for and train them, and you can learn to ride, or ride better, with a professional instructor if you would like, with lessons always at no cost to you. Those lessons can be private, peer group with other veterans, or family lessons if you would like to get your family involved. Practice what you learn between lessons, working at your own pace.
