Healing Strides of Virginia has worked with our local veterinarians and Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine to rehab horses over the years that were in need of specific medical attention but not hospitalization. Some of these horses we kept here to begin working in our various programs after full recovery and others we found great adaptors for! Overtime, we have built great relationships with several veterinarians at Virginia-MarylandRegional College of Veterinary Medicine and with our local team of veterinarians, allowing our staff has gained knowledge and experience from these relationships, focusing on a team approach. With the guidance of our team of veterinarians, chiropractors, body workers, and trainers we are able to treat and rehab most of our own minor medical injuries/illnesses on our own horses that serve in our programs.

We are always striving for the best care possible for our horses that serve our participants and strive to see the whole horse. Our team at HSVA is highly trained and educated to see the details, we get to know each horse personally so that we can spot any changes before they become big issues. This includes us monitoring and adjusting each of our days according to what the horses needs are to best care for and support the physical, mental, and emotional health of the horses we partner with. This standard of care, management, and proactive action takes a substantial amount of funding and community support to maintain throughout the years for such a large herd. We are always seeking out different types funding through grants, foundations, donors, and other avenues, with our long-term goal of having a fully funded endowment that would support our herd for years to come!
