State Theme “Heroes & Horses”

2019 -2020

The 2019-2020 T.S.C.A.R. State Project is Heroes & Horses.  Heroes & Horses is a therapeutic riding program for veterans facing disabilities such as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Heroes & Horses is located at Shangri-La Therapeutic Academy of Riding (STAR) in Lenoir City, Tennessee. While participating in this program, veterans gain many skills such as improved balance, strengthened core and muscle tone. Also, while they are participating in their program, veterans are experiencing emotional benefits such as stress relief, relaxation, increased self-esteem and networking with other veterans. Heroes & Horses program expenses are covered by donations from organizations such as Wounded Warrior Project, local corporations and individuals so that there is no cost to the veteran participants.
