Leave No Veteran Behind



Horses and Heroes is a Reality TV series, which combines the highly effective peer support with Equine Therapy.  Each season will bring together eight veterans that will come from the broad veteran demographic. They will be sharing their challenges and supporting each other as they find new solutions.    When it airs, it will reach into the homes of the veterans, who need to hear that they are not alone, and give them the information they need to also heal.


These days, the emphasis has been on the veterans from the current conflicts; however, many of those from previous wars never had a chance to work through that they experienced.  They pigeonholed their lives and tried to leave their pain behind.  But now that they are reaching an age when they are starting to review their lives, that is no longer so easy to do.  For this reason, Horses and Heroes will not only attract the prized 18-35-year-old demographic, but also those who served in the Vietnam, Korean, and WWII.



While in service no brother or sister in arms behind.   Although most of the attention and support has been focused on the veterans from the current conflicts, many from the previous conflicts never receive the help and support they needed to heal through their physical and emotional pain.  Horses and Heroes will be bringing veterans of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, and both genders together.  It’s never too late to heal and come back to the world.  Transportation, housing, food, and therapy as well as a small stipend for the eight veterans in the program will cost $3,500.00 for each.  We are asking for the support of individuals and organizations to help us with these costs.



Advertising is a necessary part of every successful business venture.  It not only makes the customers aware of the products available, but it also gives brand recognition. We are looking for corporate sponsorship to cross brand with Horses and Heroes.   Sponsoring Horses and Heroes through cross-branding will create positive PR in a cost effective manner, while setting an industry standard for social responsibility.  We are offering an updated version of cross-branding Mutual of Omaha did with its sponsorship of The Wild Kingdom.  In doing so, we will be combining old school with today’s promotional techniques to create a whole new marketing tool.


Supporting Horses and Heroes helps to make sure no veteran no veteran is left behind.  Please join our team by sponsoring a veteran or by cross branding with Horses and Heroes.  There are also investment opportunities still available.

Will you help save veterans' lives?



Horses and Heroes is a reality TV series, which promotes healing rather than bad behavior. Although Equine Therapy will be the stage, the focus will remain on the veterans and how their lives as well as those of their families were changed by the physical and emotional challenges brought into their lives by war.

Veterans supporting veterans has always been more effective than working with civilian therapists. They have been there and done that, which is why they know when to cut slack and when to call the other on the BS.

Each season, Horses and Heroes will bring together eight veterans, who want to reclaim their lives from their physical and emotional challenges. They will support each other as they work with the horses and tell their stories.

Veterans can't go back and make a brand new start, but they can start from now and make a brand new end. Together they will give each other the strength and courage they need to change their directions of their lives toward the new end.

Giving veterans options

Bobby Kilgore, the co-host of Horses and Heroes, interviewed Jeannette Taper on the Internet radio show, Until you walk the path, You don't know where it goes. They talked about her experiences working at the VA as well as sharing her reasons for becoming a whistle blower. Towards the end of the show, there is contact information for the VA, including Robert McDonald, the VA, and the news networks.







Horses and Heroes combines the concepts a talk show with that of a documentary, by intertwining the spontaneity of a talk show with the scripted informational aspects of a documentary. It will utilize both interviews and practical demonstrations of horse therapy to give the audience a full understanding of how and why working with the horses help veterans heal. Although Equine Therapy will be the stage, the primary focus will be on the eight veterans as they sharing what they experienced while they served our country and how those events had a lasting effect on their lives as well as on those who love them.


Horses and Heroes is not about pointing fingers or creating a political firestorm. It is a documentary series, which will help military personnel and veterans find a new way to cope with the physical and emotional challenges brought into their lives by war. Equine Therapy does not involve drugs nor lying on a couch and spilling their guts to a therapist. What it does do is help them find new ways to see and react to their emotional triggers. It helps their bodies remember how it used to work. It can't replace what was lost, but it can give them the confidence to see that they are more than the sum of their body parts. Horses and Heroes will give veterans and military personnel the information they need to find alternative healing solutions, which can help lower the suicide rate.

Can Veterans Rebuild Their Lives?

All veterans' lives matter from Theresa Chaze on Vimeo.


A chance meeting created Horses and Heroes.  I met an elderly gentleman in the Borders café.  He was wearing a hat that identified him as a veteran.  I thanked him for his service and we started chatting about his experiences in WW II.  At the time, I was mentally taking notes for a scripted series I was writing called, Operation Home Base; however, our conversation showed me that I had the means to help in a very meaningful way.

His name was William Greene.  Decades later, he still hadn’t come to terms with his guilt and regret.  He survived, but his many of buddies didn’t.  He killed good men just because of where they happen to be born.  Through him, I connected the dots between Operation Home Base and another project, which lead to the creation of Horses and Heroes.

It is easy to get political and throw verbal rock at individuals and agencies.  But what good does it really do?  Pointing out the problem doesn’t create solutions.  Everyone knows what needs to be done.  But many people are too busy pointing fingers to actually find answers.

Horses and Heroes is my solution.  It is a Realty TV series that focuses on healing rather than glorifying bad behavior.  Working with the horses helps veterans find new ways to cope with their physical and emotional challenges.  Telling their stories in a safe, supportive environment gives them the means to face their ghosts head on.   Horses and Heroes can’t get them back what they lost.  War took that person. Yet it doesn’t have to be the end of their story.  One of my favorite sayings is, “You can’t go back and make a brand new start, but you can start from now and make a brand new end.”  Horses and Heroes will help veterans find the strength and courage within themselves to rebuild their lives and create that brand new end.

Everyone serves in the own way.  Although, I don’t have the temperament for the military, I greatly respect those who stand the wall.  I choose use my talents to help veterans tell their stories in such a way that they will heal themselves and show others that healing is possible.

Equine Therapy does not involve drugs nor lying on a couch and spilling their guts to a therapist. What it does do is help them find new ways to see and react to their emotional triggers. It helps their bodies remember how it used to work. It can't replace what was lost, but it can give them the confidence to see that they are more than the sum of their body parts and life experiences. Horses and Heroes will give veterans and military personnel the information they need to find alternative healing solutions, which can help lower the suicide rate.

VA Whistle Blower speaks out

Until You Walk The Path, You Won’t Know Where it Goes will be chatting with veteran and VA whistle blower, Jeannette Taper on Wednesday, November 11, 2015 at 1 pm eastern.

Jeannette Taper has 30 years of combined military service. Like many other service members, she has experienced traumatic events that changed her life forever. The first was a simple back surgery between the T8-T9 that went wrong and she left the hospital in a wheel chair. The second event happened during her recovery from surgery, when she was sexual assaulted. That was the beginning of my journey to heal through hell. She was recruited by the VA to as a Peer Support Specialist. She was assigned to the Cheyenne Medical Center. She learned that of “Ethical Boundaries in the Patient-Clinician Relationships “ had very little meaning to other members of the staff.

The phone lines and chat will be available for those who wish to ask questions. The phone number is (347) 838-9927.

Patriotism for Profit



November 11 is a day to honor those who have served our nation during peace time as well as war. However, it has been corrupted by those who put profits over people by turning it into another marketing tool.

To learn more how you can help veterans find new coping skills for their physical and emotional challenges visit Horses and Heroes' website

Horses and Heroes is not about pointing fingers or creating a political firestorm. It can’t fix the system nor will is a cure all. What it will do is show that there are alternatives, which more effectively help military personnel and veterans to heal their way home. They can't go back and make a brand new start, but they can start from the now and make a brand new end. We want veterans and military personnel to know that we have their back.
