Boarding for Deployed Soldiers

I don't find anything like this for deployed soldiers and their horses, just their smaller, house pets. I was thinking of getting volunteer riders and matching them with horse and soldier. That way, the soldier also gets a pen-pal in the mix. Any thoughts? Suggestions? My farrier would do the work & supplies for free and I have volunteers for labor & riding. Not sure if /what to charge? Would love to make it completely free for deployed...

Its a good idea in theory I guess. But we don't always get any time at all to make arrangements like that and I for one am super picky about my farrier/vet/rider for my horse.

Most people would also want to stick with their own farriers/vets or send them o say a family member or close friend. Not to mention cost involved foe you.

What about TDY's? Classes and trading etc.

I would offer those services. They could certainly use their own. This would be for those that have maybe don't have a permanent boarding facility or have to give up their home while deployed. I hope I'm explaining it right.

You might contact Dogs on Deployment and the others out there and mention you would be interested in helping with any horses?

That's what I was trying to do. If I could just go help them, that would be perfect!

Don't get me wrong I think its a great idea. Wish I'd had it myself for a few TDY's.

Idk where you're located...but everywhere I've been stationed, they've had boarding facilities there as well so if there is one near you maybe go talk to them

See what their usual SOP is for when boarders deploy there, what kind of services etc. They provide.

Thank you so much! We are going to offer it, see what happens?! At least it's out there in case someone needs it.
