FOR veterans and their families, BY veterans and their families.
We are a Veteran operated Non-Profit Organization. We understand the unique needs of our heroes and their families. We care. We understand. We've been there.
Our Horses For Heroes program is operated by Licensed and Certified Professionals. This is not just time with horses...we offer real therapy that makes a real difference. We provide Eagala Certified Equine Assisted Psychotherapy for Veterans, First Responders, & their immediate family members at no cost. There is no horseback riding involved in our programs. We utilize a ground-based horse & human interaction model to help with the healing, learning, and growing process.
All Sessions are Confidential & Private. There are no volunteers on site intruding on sessions. Your anonymity and privacy is protected at Sunny Creek Ranch!
Small Group Veteran Sessions are every Tuesday & Friday at 10am. Call/text to confirm at 281-229-3633. Private veteran & first responder sessions, marriage counseling, & family sessions by appointment Monday-Friday. DD214 or valid Proof of Service is required for our Horses For Heroes program.

Build trust, develop better communication skills, & learn to manage emotions by working with the horses in our Equine Therapy programs. Discover ways to reconnect, de-stress, & communicate more effectively through the horse-human connection. We address stress, anger, PTSD, MST, depression, anxiety, communication skills, relationships with loved ones, boundaries, civilian adjustment issues, & many more.
We serve all branches, all ages, all ability levels, combat or peacetime. Please wear boots or closed toe shoes. We work with the horses on the ground, no horseback riding is involved and no prior horse experience is necessary. Our sessions are hands on, experiential, & solution oriented. We operate year round except in heavy rain or lightening.
