ROCK has proudly served veterans and their families since 2005. Research published in collaboration with Baylor University shows that ROCK’s veterans programs decrease depression and improve quality of life for both veterans and their families. Through the horse-human connection, ROCK has seen countless miracles as veterans return from the isolation of depression and PTSD, reuniting with their families on whole new levels, and finding new purpose in life again. In the 2018-2019 program year, ROCK provided service hours to hundreds of veterans and their family members. In addition to serving veterans, ROCK offers Camp Courage, a yearly camp for the children of veterans and active duty service members. ROCK is able to offer these programs to veterans and their families thanks in large part to the generosity of Rider Cup Classic Sponsors and Golfers.
