How Neon helps Veterans
Our programs for service personnel include programs and support for their spouses and families because we understand that when one person serves, so does their family. Neon, like his predecessor Latino, is one of the horses whose gentle souls help heal our Veterans.
Meet Mark & Watch his Story
I’m Mark. I retired from the United States Air Force as a deputy fire chief. I also participate in the High Hopes Veteran’s Program and I am a current volunteer.
I served 30 years and was deployed to Iraq, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates. I retired from service and was subsequently diagnosed with PTSD. The Equus Effect program and my connection with Latino at High Hopes was something that saved me. Sometimes all it took was the smell of the barn and the hay that made me feel like it was okay to just be me.
