Saddles In Service Hosts 2nd Annual Holes for Heroes Golf Tournament, Raises $80,000

Nearly 200 golfers and supporters were on hand for a glorious day of golfing and fellowship to raise nearly $80,000 for Saddles in Service.

The weather couldn’t have been better and golfers were treated to good company, good food, and a beautiful auction display of over 60 donated items that sent the auction funds to over $8,000 in bids!

Saddles in Service can’t thank its supporters enough for all that they do and they look forward to having your continued support. Thanks again to everyone for paving the way to help secure the 2023 Title Sponsor – BW Industrial Sales and ensuring an even more successful tournament next year!

Saddles In-Service is a Veteran founded non-profit promoting mental health wellness and healing for Veterans, Active Duty, First Responders, and Horses through equine-assisted activities. Its Mission is to combat the suicide rates of Veterans, Active Duty Military, and First Responders and to promote mental health wellness, and healing to these Heroes and their families through equine-assisted learning and activities. Veterans, Active Duty Military, First Responders, and their families that have been diagnosed with or are experiencing symptoms related to post-traumatic stress (PTSD), anxiety, depression, job-related stress, and/or traumatic brain injuries are partnered with a horse through their healing journey. In turn, SIS helps them to rediscover their joy, hope, confidence, and purpose.

They embrace all humans and horses that walk through the SIS gate as family, with respect and compassion. They encourage all of their volunteers and heroes to continue learning about themselves, others, and horsemanship. They lift one another up and they don’t break anyone down. They support each human and horse in their journey to become the best version of themselves, living a life of purpose and freedom.

The Saddles In-Service program offers Active Duty Military, Veterans, and First Responders the unique opportunity to explore their own healing alongside a rescue horse. Many men and women experience different stressors throughout their service to our Nation and communities. It is the goal of SIS to assist Heroes in their process of working through these stressors.
