Equine Buddies Program

Military Animal Project offers a distinct program working with horses and veterans called the Equine Buddies Program (EBP). The program is an onsite equine retreat that helps the Veteran form a close bond with the horse and is an exercise in Leadership, Trust, and Respect. 


  • The opportunity to connect with your fellow Veterans/Warriors, caring people and the ultimate counselor…the horse.
