Equine Buddies Program

Military Animal Project is an affiliate of Veteran Barn Door Project (VBDP) and is pleased to be bringing this 3 day, onsite Equine Buddies Program to Ventura County, CA. For more information, please call or email:



The Veteran Barn Door Project (VBDP) is a national 501c3 organization Founded by Army veteran Steven “Lucky” DePalma.  VBDP helps the Veteran form a close bond with the horse. It is an exercise in leadership, trust and respect. The horse becomes a mirror of how the Veteran is perceived by others and opens the Veteran to the inner issues he/she needs to address to move forward in civilian life.

The Veteran Barn Door Project is committed to bringing balance and trust through horse therapy. Our mission is to provide the structure and the services through equine activities that can support the healing process for PTSD.
