Therapeutic Riding Program
• At Challenged Champions we are honored to be able to serve the members of our community with special needs. It is an amazing feeling being able to witness first hand the accomplishments of our participants, and the reactions of their families when they achieve their goals. It is not easy to put into words the profound impact this program has on the lives of not only the participants, but also their families, the volunteers and instructors as well. We are extremely proud that our veterans program has finally taken off this past year. It has been, and continues to be, a process to reach out to veterans that qualify for our program. This past year we were able to serve over 20 veterans at Challenged Champions, with some veterans coming from as far away as Detroit. These veterans have said that there are not many programs or opportunities for them to participate in locally, which is why they make the drive to our facility. Our veterans have told us that Horses for Veterans means so much to them and they appreciate the opportunity to participate.
