How Blue Jeans & Dreams Truly Changes Lives

HETRA currently serves over 100 participants, ages 2 to 92, with a variety of diagnoses, including autism, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, developmental delays, down syndrome, traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, and strokes.  We also have robust Military Veteran and First Responder programs. It is our mission to improve the quality of life both physically and emotionally of adults and children of all ability levels through Equine-Assisted Activities. This could mean Adaptive Riding, Therapy Services, Life Skills Development Courses, Mental Wellness sessions, and more, all with the help of our Occupational Therapists, Mental Health Therapists, and PATH Intl. Certified Instructors. 

The Blue Jeans & Dreams Benefit primarily subsidizes the Participant Sponsorship Fund.  This fund helps HETRA maintain session fees at a reduced and affordable rate for all HETRA participants, regardless of their financial situation. It also helps us keep our Military & First Responders events free of charge. At the end of the day, we never want to turn someone away from services because of financial reasons. That is why Blue Jeans & Dreams is so important.
