In November 2018 Northwestern Farm Credit Services (NFCS) generously donated $2,000 to fund harnesses and tack for horses used in the Veteran’s “Driving” program at HSHI. The funds are timely in that horses are now being fit for harnesses that will be used for spring and summer training.
HSHI staff, program participants and our 4-legged equine partners would sincerely like to thank NFCS for their donation. The new harnesses will enhance program expansion and safe instruction for Veterans, as well as enable our horses to work in comfort.
The “driving” program is relatively new to HSHI’s service menu, but plans for expansion are being drafted based upon Veteran interest and feedback.
