Stable Hands Equine Therapy Center
Stable Hands’ program for Veterans is called V.A.S.T. (Veterans Assisted Sports Training). Therapeutic horses are partnered with Veterans for them to gain self-understanding and emotional growth. V.A.S.T. recognizes the bond between animals and humans, and sees the potential for emotional healing that can occur when a relationship is formed and nurtured.
The Stable Hands V.A.S.T. Program offers horse-based activities to enhance the recovery from physical, emotional, social and cognitive struggles that veterans may face in civilian life. We offer different levels of instruction to guide Veterans through the program.

The Wisconsin Veterans Home at King is where love of country merges with 130 years of Caring for America’s Heroes. All branches of the armed forces are represented here. Each branch has its own esprit de corps, but all are united as veterans of this great country in a community with camaraderie borne out of shared military experience.
The Wisconsin Veterans Home at King is a long term and rehabilitative care facility caring for veterans, a veteran’s spouse,the surviving spouse of a veteran, and Gold Star Parents (parents who have lost a son or daughter in combat). We offer quality medical and nursing care that enhances quality of life. Our highly trained and dedicated staff strive to meet the unique needs of veterans by providing compassionate care built on the foundation of integrity, honor and respect.
Spanning across 42 acres of the richest, most picturesque scenery, the Wisconsin Veterans Home at King is a gem like no other. Exquisitely nestled between the bluest of blue spring-fed lakes, embraced by lush green rolling hills, the sights and sounds of this magical setting will take your breath away. This unsurpassed beauty is not commonly home to a long term care facility, but how appropriate a setting providing peace and tranquility for those who bore the battle.
