With continued efforts to better leverage the Cooperative Extension System as a force multiplier in Military Family Readiness and Capacity Building, we would like to share the horse programs and resources available at each Cooperative Extension office in the pilot states.

David Lee Sexton, Jr. of the OneOp Family Development Team wrote  “A Horse is a Horse (of course, of course)… But Could a Horse be a Therapist’s Assistant?” about equine-assisted activities and therapy (EEA/T).
