Train. Counsel. Educate.

Proudly serving our Active Military, Veterans, First Responders, and their Families through Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, Learning, and Coaching.  


 Trained with Excellence, being served with Excellence. Our Military Service Members and Law Enforcement officers have been trained with excellence in mind - why wouldn’t we, who serve them, be trained with excellence as well?

 You’re not “broken,” and don’t need “fixing.” At Operation EQUINE, counseling is different. The horses know things and can give us insights about ourselves and each other that we might not get in a traditional office setting. We believe that mental health is closely tied to physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being, and work with people from that perspective.

“Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'.” 
― Viktor E. Frankl

We need to learn and understand more about ourselves, our diagnoses, our symptoms to be able to address and heal them. For instance:“PTS/D” is real, and it’s time to start understanding more about how we can work towards PTG: Post-Traumatic Growth. We need to learn and understand where our challenges come from, why we are affected like we are, and what strategies and tools we can use to make it better.
