Our mission:

We strive to improve the quality of life of persons with special needs through the use of equine therapy, and to leave the world around us better than we found it.

My Heroes, LLC was founded in 2005 at Chastain Horse Park in Atlanta, Georgia by physical therapist and horse enthusiast Brent Applegate based on his conviction that hippotherapy was the most effective and efficient therapeutic treatment tool in existence. In response to the quality of service and success of his riders, the program grew steadily year by year and is now a staple of the prestigious Buckhead community and the surrounding Atlanta area. My Heroes now provides a number of services, including occupational therapy, home based therapy, and special ‘diagnosis specific’ camps and programs to special needs riders of all ages.
