Horses4Heroes, one of the most successful equestrian support groups for the military, is riding into Nashville, Sunday, May 27, from noon to 5:30 pm with a special Operation Free Ride open house for military heroes and their families. The event is being held at A Cowboy Town in White’s Creek. Owner Denise Reynolds, herself a member of the National Guard and home from a recent deployment, knows a thing or two about sacrifice and service! “This is a great opportunity for our local military families to come out and enjoy not only a day with horses, but a fun-filled day of horseback riding, pony rides, panning for gold, canoeing, fishing, country western music and BBQ.” The event is free and open to anyone with Military ID.
Operation Free Ride, spearheaded by Horses4Heroes in partnership with the Armed Forces Foundation, is the largest collaboration of equestrian organizations and breed associations, uniting in support of our troops, veterans, Wounded Warriors and families. Operation Free Ride is a national initiative to introduce the therapeutic and healing power of horses and the recreational benefits of horseback riding to those who serve. To date, we have 160 facilities in 40 states plus Canada. More than 1000 have registered for a free ride via www.operationfreeride.com.
