Our Story

A Different View Equine Center is a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization. We survive on private donors, local grants, and our amazing

volunteers. We have no paid employees.

Our herd consists of 6 full sized horses, 3 mini horses, 1 steer, 2 pot bellied pigs and a handful of barn cats. 

Our mission is to help veterans, 1st responders, their families and caregivers. Life is hard for those that are no longer in the service, having to transition back to civilian life can be a very big culture shock. The brotherhood they relied on to survive is no longer there, the goals, missions and objectives have disappeared, and their purpose in life can feel like it’s been taken away. That is where we come into their lives. Our need for physical work is abundant and our resources are growing everyday. We become the “family” they lost. Horses are herd animals and the need to connect and be present is hardwired into their brains. There is no judgement, no expectation, no right or wrong, they just are. We ask that you come exactly as you are.
