Join us for our 3rd Annual Heart of a Warrior Un-Gala!

Saturday, May 25th, 2024 from 6-9PM at Healing with Horses Ranch

Healing with Horses Ranch is proud to offer veterans, first responders, and active duty individuals Adaptive Riding & Equine-Assisted Learning services through our Unbridled Warriors program completely free of charge to thank them for their service. We would not be able to do this without the support of our generous community and year-round fundraising. Attending this event is a unique way to support the Unbridled Warriors program while also enjoying a fun evening together at the Ranch.

You definitely don’t want to miss the inaugural “Pony Patty” Bingo, which will run throughout the evening. You’ll have a chance to buy a lucky plot or a few that you think looks the most likely to get a deposit from a member of our therapy herd!
