VA Funding

So honored and excited to have worked with Congressman Andy Barr’s office to successfully include therapies incorporating horses into a new proposed bill to provide more access to community resources for suicide prevention with veterans! Read the full press release here that shares Eagala’s letter of support and the success of Rep. Barr’s amendment: http://bit.ly/2sagkG3. And watch the video to hear Rep. Barr propose his amendment in committee to add “adaptive sports, equine-assisted therapy, and non-traditional and innovative approaches to the list of covered services in the bill…” He also formally identifies Eagala and reads our letter of support for entry in the congressional record! This is a powerful acknowledgment and support for the impact of Eagala programs addressing mental health needs worldwide. Thank you @RepAndyBarr for your incredible support and advocacy for the work we do in Eagala to change lives through the beneficial relationship with #horses. #WeAreEagala #Veterans #suicideprevention #horsesheal
