A new program at Right Path Riding Academy near Drumright, Oklahoma pairs veterans with horses for therapeutic riding classes. Riders spend most of the time practicing basic rider's skills in the barn. The veterans program targets returning veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and uses horses to combat its symptoms. Right Path recently received a $10,000 grant from the Disabled Veterans National Foundation that funds part of the Hooves on the Ground horsemanship program.
