Mission Mustang® Program:


In 2018, EquiCenter launched Mission Mustang® as part of our ongoing effort to help veterans heal from the physical and emotional scars of war. Veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) are often hyper-vigilant of their surroundings and struggling to find purpose and mission. To help them integrate back into civilian society, we partnered with the U.S. Department of the Interior's Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to develop Mission Mustang®, a national program that pairs veterans battling PTS with captive mustangs experiencing the same feelings of loss and anxiety. Under the guidance of professional mustang trainers, the veterans gentle the mustangs and - as they teach the horses and prepare them to find new homes – these same men and women find themselves.
