PFW contributes raised funds to local veterans in need (rent, car repair, food, gas etc) and other non-profit organizations that support veterans such as Never Forgotten Honor Flight, Camp American Legion and Hogs for Heros . We also support in non-financial ways such as assisting with moving, lawn care, snow shoveling.
We raise money with fund raisers such as the pool tournament, raffles through out the year and motorcycle rides.
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.
