Horses4Heroes Spring Veterans Open House March 2
Event marks 4th anniversary of Horses4Heroes' relocation to Floyd Lamb Park
Activities during the open house will include un-mounted exercises with horses, horseback rides (weight limit 225 pounds), fishing, wheel chair tours of the park, yoga, tractor-pulled hay rides, and interactions with farm animals.
"We invite all veterans, caregivers, spouses, family members and friends, service members and First Responders, too, to attend this open house and see for yourself why these type of programs help with PTS, relieve stress and anxiety and lower Cortisol levels," said Sydney Knott, president/founder of Las Vegas-based non-profit, Horses4Heroes. "For returning combat veterans, there are no triggers here at the park and horses are not judgmental. They don't care where you've been, only that you're a good person. We also offer opportunities for families to get reunited after frequent and long deployments."
Refreshments will be provided by Homes for Heroes and the City of Las Vegas Adaptive Therapy Team will have information about their programs. Yoga sessions throughout the open house will be provided by Tsikki Thau.
"Tsikki Thau and her team of experts are thrilled to participate in the Horses4Heroes Veterans Open House," said Gabby Reimann, executive assistant to Tsikki Thau. "Our instructors will teach Yoga, Breath Therapy,and Stress Managment techniques to participants."
