The Saddles For Soldiers (SFS) non-profit is an integral part of the Shadow Hills/La Cañada community. It has provided treatment for symptoms of PTSD and TBI for America’s service members. SFS is also providing costfree therapy and transitional housing to any and all veterans regardless of the time in which they served to this country.
The Shadow Hills Equestrian Center is the host for Saddles For Soldiers and is a PATH-accredited premier facility, one of only two in the greater L.A. area.
One disabled American Veteran that benefited from the program is Casey L. Gray. He said, “I am a 100-percent disabled Veteran and I have had the honor of being assisted by Saddles For Soldiers with my own personal struggles with TBI. I can tell you that Johnny Higginson, the founder of the program, has really done a great service to this country and to our service men and women with his dedication and patriotism. Saddles For Soldiers runs on donations and is only funded by events like the Equestrian Center’s BBQ. They have partnered with Harmony Farms to provide 100-percent, grass-fed beef for the BBQ and we look forward to the community’s support of not only our veterans, but the businesses of OUR community.”
