HETRA Impacts Community for 25 Years


Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy (HETRA) 25 Year Celebration & Open House

Omaha, Nebraska – September 10, 2014

Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy has been serving the Omaha/Metro area for 25 years… after years of doing so out of two smaller, separate privately owned facilities in Valley and Omaha, HETRA has moved to its new location in Gretna and would like you to celebrate with them!  On Saturday, September 13th from 4:00-8:00 pm there will be tours of the new facility, therapeutic riding demonstrations and the unveiling of the new Mustaches 4 Kids Omaha Barn ~ (Huskers don’t play until 9:30 pm)

There will be free beer, wine and soft drinks along with music, free food, snacks and games for kids.  HETRA moved to the Gretna location in June of 2014, with much thanks to the local Omaha chapter of Mustaches 4 Kids, who helped raise the funds to make the move possible.  HETRA’s mission is to improve the quality of life both physically and emotionally of adults and children with disabilities through equine assisted activities.  HETRA also provides services to Veterans at no cost.  Come out and meet the HETRA staff and horses!

Key HETRA staff will be on hand to discuss the many triumphs and celebrate the countless successes over the past 25 years, as well as to provide insight regarding the organization’s exciting future.
