Flags for Equestrian Heroes
Honoring Equestrian Heroes, and their Handlers
NEW FOR 2021, you can now honor an Equestrian Hero with a flag as well! Throughout history, military equestrian units have been used in warfare. Last year we honored Fort Hood’s 1st Cavalry Division by including them in the Parade of Colors, and we included a section of flags to honor horses that serve our country and our communities in law enforcement as well.
Equine therapy has long served to encourage physical, cognitive, and emotional rehabilitation, providing veterans and first responders, as well as children and adults with disabilities, to help to reclaim their independence, confidence, and strength. Honoring these heroes with a flag is another way to say thank you to them and their handlers.
