Our Sponsors

Special thanks to our sponsors! Without them we couldn’t serve the veterans, first responders and horses of Bethany’s Gait! Please follow the links to get more info about these worthy companies:

OUR HORSES

Most of our horses have been rescued from abandonment, abuse or neglect. At Bethany’s Gait they have a new lease on life, learning not only to trust humans again but to become an integral part of our team teaching leadership skills and healing emotional wounds.

We have horses of various breeds and sizes in our herd.

All of the horses reside in Prescott where they are actively engaged in teaching Veterans and first responders leadership skills, and helping others heal from PTSD or integrate back into civilian life. They also work with spouses and children of Veterans and first responders.
