Horses for Heroes

July 2023 Community Spotlight

Horses4Heroes has been serving local heroes and their families since 2006. The organization's mission is to provide affordable programs and life-changing experiences with horses for those in our community whose call of duty is to protect, serve, teach, and heal.

Horses4Heroes offers low-cost horseback riding programs and activities, including camps, lessons, birthday parties, field trips, and corporate outings for ages 2 to adult. Workshops are held for veterans and first responders with PTSD, survivors of domestic abuse, violence, trauma and trafficking, recovering addicts, foster children and teens, and at-risk youth. In addition, team building and leadership training programs are offered.

Lexicon Bank is proud to feature Horses4Heroes as our July Community Spotlight. It gives us the opportunity to advocate and support its effective healing programs for our deeply deserving military veterans and first responders. Ongoing summer activities include Stable Saturdays from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. through August 5th (passes on sale now), and Summer Ranch Camp – eight, one-week camps through July 31st. Camps are designed for kids in grades Pre-K through 7th grade.
