These two difficult to predict and difficult to prevent reoccurring national tragedies are two strategic targets of our national initiative. The therapeutic benefits of contact with horses is widely recognized and it is our goal to bring tens of thousands of our nations ten million horses “into communities” regularly to make our contribution for the prevention of suicide and drug overdosing.
The key is
- partnering with the chiefs of police of 25,000 plus towns/cities
- making a three day a year, two year commitment to each.
At the end of the day a Horses Over America Team Leader with their 1/2 horses “becomes a asset” of that police departments community policing arm.
