Connections – Saratoga WarHorse Newsletter Fall 2016

By on February 15, 2017 in Newsletter


At the Saratoga WarHorse Blue Spangled Gala, I had the opportunity to sit with a number of extremely kind and gen-erous individuals from Aiken, SC. These people included Mr. Jim Rhodes and Mr. & Mrs. Gregory. During the dinner hour we discussed my service and the Gregory’s and Mr. Rhodes took an active interest in my story and all that I have done during my time in the Army. During dinner I decided to bid on a beautiful piece of artwork titled “Coming Home.” However, I was quickly outbid on this item so I returned to my table and carried on with the evening. At the end of the evening we were getting ready to go and Mrs. Gregory presented me with this painting as a gift for my service. Mr. Rhodes also informed me that he would be making a donation to the Saratoga WarHorse fund in my name.

I am so grateful that at this event I was able to meet so many wonderful people who so selflessly opened up their hearts and their wallets to support veterans such as myself, and other veterans whom they will never know. I am continuously humbled by the kind gestures of complete strangers. It is acts such as these that inspire me to keep staying in the fight and always remind me that there are so many good people who truly care so much.

Connections – Saratoga WarHorse Newsletter Summer 2016

SWH-Newsletter-Summer-2016_thumbAs a recent “graduate” of the Saratoga experience, I have felt compelled to write this letter with the hope it can communicate the value of the WarHorse pro-gram.

I happened to see a video posted on Facebook highlighting Saratoga War-Horse. I called Bob to get some information and insight into what and how he was doing what he does. As you I’m sure know, Bob is very adept at sensing and hear-ing need just through a phone conversation. After a 10 minute call, he invited me to attend the program.

After meeting all of my classmates, Bob and Janelle, we had that awkward first meal together. After eating we got the first taste of what we were about to be part of. I learned very quickly that Bob and Janelle truly believe in what they are doing and showed it by giving so much of their time and themselves. We were all a little more comfortable and a little more at ease preparing for the experience day.

Connections – Saratoga WarHorse Newsletter Winter 2016

By on February 8, 2016 in Newsletter


SWH-Newslette-winter-2016_thumbA while ago, I ran across the website for a program called Saratoga WarHorse. I reached out to Bob Nevins, Director of Veteran Program and Founder. Bob called me and we spoke on the phone about the program and then selected my date to attend the program and it was one of the best choices I’ve made in a long time. Saratoga WarHorse is an unbelievable program that works on a simple level. It is just you and the horse.

Jason’s father asked; could Saratoga WarHorse have saved his life? ‘I…we will never know, but it would have been great if Jason could have had the chance. I want to give that chance to others.’

Connections – Saratoga WarHorse Newsletter Volume 2, Number 1

SWH-Newsletter-Vol.1-No.4-Jan.2014.v4.inddI spent a lot of time on SWH’s website, and was immediately moved by testimonials from the veterans whose lives were literally saved by the horses at Saratoga WarHorse. The short documentaries on the website moved me to tears, and I knew it would be a wonderful organization for us to work with. What struck me most about SWH was that it gave veterans a chance to connect at the deepest emotional and spiritual level to these horses, a healing connection that other humans usually cannot provide. I had the idea of donating a portion of ticket sales to SWH, and was incredibly happy last week when we announced that we were donating almost $9,000 to SWH.
