Elliott Acres has partnered with the Butler VA to offer free equestrian lessons for Veterans and their Families. These sessions will take place on Wednesdays from 5pm to 8pm weather permitting and be taught by fellow Veteran and instructor Bill Schoenecker. If you are a Veteran and you or an immediate family member are interested in this service we are providing please contact us so that we can get you added to the Wednesday schedule. Please know this is not limited to just riding. If you do not wish to ride but would like to just groom the horses or help clean the stalls or learn about equine assisted therapy or volunteer in any way, we will happily assist you to the best of our ability. We are proud and honored to be supporting our Veterans and thank them all for their service.
