Soldiers Angels - Helping Disabled Veterans
Heroes and Horses
"There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man." Sir Winston Churchill
It is said that in war there are no unwounded soldiers. The Soldiers Angels - Heroes and Horses program is designed in "Helping Disabled Veterans" an opportunity to heal those soldiers and "Wounded Veterans" by experiencing the joys of nature in a setting of rugged beauty and peacefulness, alongside their fellow soldiers, with equine partners to take them into the pristine backcountry of the Rocky Mountains, and the knowledge to do so.
All the principals involved in organizing the Heroes and Horses experience have a deep connection with nature, horses, a love for the outdoors and deep ties to the military through their own service or that of generations of family members. The project operates out of the Mantle Ranch, the largest family of working horse ranches in the country, outside of Three Forks, Montana alongside the Missouri River.
Heroes and Horses is proud to be supported and facilitated by Soldiers' Angels. Soldiers' Angels is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit with hundreds of thousands of volunteers providing aid and comfort to the "Men and Women" of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, veterans and their families. Our goal here at Heroes and Horses is "Helping Disabled Veterans" of the Gulf War - Iraq and Afghanistan to overcome and adapt!
"May No Soldier Go Unloved" is Soldiers' Angels call to action and for Heroes and Horses, we echo "May No Life Go Unlived."

The project’s name was chosen to evoke the spirit of courage and passion that lies in all of us and to focus on the powerful relationship and bond between man and horse. Heroes and Horses proves Winston Churchill’s theory correct, as do a number of new studies and programs that focus the quantitative results of horses’ influence upon humans and human behavior.
Soldiers Angels - Heroes and Horses helps soldiers live their lives to the fullest.
