Event description

Description

Our primary goal at The PEACH Pit is to provide affordable, low cost mental health counseling to all clients. One segment of our population is Veterans. Sadly, a 2016 Department of Veterans Affairs report indicates that about 20 Veterans commit suicide daily. We want to do our part to prevent those deaths.

To that end, the inaugural Horsepower and Heroes Retreat for men is all inclusive three-day outdoors retreat at our farm in Georgia.

Our Veterans have seen and heard things no one should see or hear. They may not reach out for help because they view seeking help as weak. Our motto is “Come join us at the barn,” and that’s our draw. Coming to The PEACH Pit for a session with our horses has a different feel, a different meaning, a different result. We offer help without the stigma.

This Horsepower and Heroes Retreat follows our November retreat for women Veterans and will have a maximum of 10 male participants. The retreat events may include:

  • Hiking
  • Horseback riding
  • Cookout
  • Fireside chats
  • Equine-assisted psychotherapy group sessions
  • Individual Accelerated Resolution Therapy sessions
  • Horse painting
  • Music
  • Archery demos/lessons
  • Raffle/Gifts

We will accept up to 100 applications and will select the recipients at random on March 17. We'll notify recipients by March 30.
