Equine Rescue of Aiken

Saratoga WarHorse Program

Saving Veterans and Horses by Building Bonds and Giving Strength

They were Soldiers in the US Military. They gave their all to protect us. Now Equine Rescue of Aiken is giving back so they are not forgotten.

The special Saratoga WarHorse program helps to rebuild them one by one with the help of our horses and facilities.

Veterans will be brought to Aiken from all over the Country by the Saratoga WarHorse Program to participate in their 3 day Program, held at our facilities. For those struggling with PTSD, This confidential, peer-to-peer and equine-based program is free to qualifying veterans. 

Saratoga WarHorse pairs Veterans with off the track Thoroughbreds, provided by Aiken Equine Rescue to use in their Program, for a life altering experience. The focus is communicating in the horses' own language,  creating a trusting relationship with the horse and emotionally empowering the Veteran.

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.
