“I have experienced Common Ground from two entirely different perspectives. First, as a participant and the experience was as penetrating as a horse’s eyes. If you are open and willing to trust, you can forge a connection that can be life changing. I carry that bond with me every day. Second, I refer veterans to Common Ground that spend time at our Warrior Call Ranch. Those experiences, for all participants, have been impactful and lasting. I believe Common Ground is truly Remarkable Ground.”

In December of 2017, founders Elizabeth Tate and Joe London decided to combine their therapeutic knowledge and horse skills to help heal military veterans who suffer from PTSD. 

Today, Common Ground, a 501c(3), harnesses the powerful connection between horses and humans to teach, learn, grow, and heal.
