In 2009 From the Ground Up partnered with the Syracuse Veterans Affairs in order to provide funding for soldiers interested participating in the Horses for Heroes.
The therapeutic rides offer mental benefits to military personnel that may have experienced traumatic events during service. The organization has observed improved self-esteem, decreased stress and increased socialization in the soldiers that have participated in their programs.
From the Ground Up is a premier accredited center for the National American Riding for the Handicapped Association. To learn more about NARHA, access narha.org online.
