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 is all inclusive two-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.

The Horsepower and Heroes Retreat will have a maximum of 10 participants. The retreat events include:

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

We will accept up to 100 applications and will select the recipients at random on Aug. 1. We'll notify recipients by Aug. 15.
