“A veteran who is housed and employed is less likely to struggle,” remarks Luke. a Veterans Vocational Horsemanship program participant. Luke comes to the program with experience in the horse world. Housing and employment are the primary outcome goals of the Veterans Vocational Horsemanship Program which is designed to provide job skills in the equine industry, as horse work often comes with housing.
