America’s Best Racing (ABR) is excited to announce the launch of “Purpose,” a three-part digital video docuseries exploring the anecdotal evidence and quest for scientific proof supporting the critical and effective role that horses play in addressing the epidemic of our veterans returning from combat with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The series, which is presented by the Man O’ War Project at Columbia University Irving Medical Center and the Earle I. Mack Foundation, examines the deep therapeutic connection between horse and human, with a particular focus on three distinct non-profit programs dedicated to serving our veterans through connections with horses, including retired Thoroughbreds. Part one focuses on SquirrelWood Equine Sanctuary, part two features the Man O’ War Project at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and part three explores the unconventional and innovative Heroes and Horses program based in Montana.
“Given the statistics, we have to do more to help our brave veterans – they need more treatment options,” said Ambassador Earle Mack. “I believe equine therapy can play a major role. The Man O’ War Project at Columbia University Irving Medical Center is honored to be a part of this docuseries that examines how horses can help veterans with PTSD.”
