HomeFront Equestrians was founded in 2010, by Denise and Elizabeth Haynes, as a way of giving back to the U.S. Military families who sacrifice so much to defend our freedom.  Coming from a large military family, we saw first-hand the effect deployments have on families, especially the children.  

After stepping away from showing American Quarter Horses on a national level, we wanted a way to combine our love of horses and the love of our country. In our first year of operation we had two children who participated; in 2018, The HFE True Horsemanship program had more than 110 children participating on a regular basis.

What Sets HomeFront Equestrians apart from similar programs;

  • First and foremost we only serve the military community;

    • We do not offer lessons to civilians

    • Nor do we board or train outside horses

  • Our programs are free for military families to participate

  • Our lessons are one-on-one and run approximately 90-120 minutes

    • Our program is not a "cookie-cutter" format, lessons are customized for each rider ​

    • Participants are welcome to come up to twice a week​

  • We believe in teaching all aspect of horsemanship; even the less glamorous jobs!
