Operation Horsepower

Learn to Drive a one or two-horse hitch! Our carriage driving lessons are to give our veterans an alternative to the traditional horse experience. Carriage driving gives the thrill of horsepower and a rewarding relationship building experience with horses. We have teamed with Troops First Foundation under Operation Horsepower to bring this program to our wounded veterans.


“As a therapist, I appreciate working with horses as a powerful way to stabilize the nervous system and help individuals with grief and trauma learn to regulate themselves. It is also a powerful opportunity to experience a safe bond. The Common Ground team does a great job of creating a safe and nurturing environment where those who are hurting can continue their healing journey.”

- Jamie Eaton, MS, LCPC
