“It is the veteran, not the preacher who has given us freedom of religion. It is the veteran, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the veteran, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the veteran, not the campus organizer who has given us freedom to assemble. It is the veteran, not the lawyer who has given us the right to a fair trial. It is the veteran, not the politian who has given us the right to vote. It is the veteran who salutes the flag, who serves under the flag and whose coffin will be draped by the flag.”

"Sunny, the namesake of Sunny Creek Ranch Horses For Heroes, changed my life and continues to change the lives of those who work with her in our veteran equine program.

My husband served 20 years in the military, and after back-to-back deployments to Iraq and moving all over the country, our family was frayed. I had lost myself.

In an effort to find myself again, I got back into horses. Sunny is a rescue from the SPCA. She was untrusting of people, rightfully so, after being a starvation case. She and I have been together for 5 years now. She has taught me forgiveness, trust, joy, overcoming odds, and so much more. She has saved me more than I have saved her.

Sunny is very selective about who she will trust, and when she selects a veteran client to share her time with, I know how special that person must be. I wake up every morning grateful she is part of my life. She understands me better than any human and we have an unbreakable bond. She has never won a ribbon but she has certainly won my heart."
—Shannon N. #TherapyHorseThursday

Sunny, from all of us at Hope in the Saddle, Nutrena Horse Feed, and Tractor Supply Co., thank you for all you do!

Our History

Shannon Novak founded the first Eagala Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Program for veterans in Montgomery County Texas in 2016. She became Eagala Certified in 2016 after witnessing the impact horses made on her husband’s life after serving 20 years in the USAF. In 2020, her program earned the distinction as an Eagala Military Services Provider, the only certified program of its kind in SE Texas. She and her husband raised two beautiful kids in the midst of multiple combat deployments and duty station changes. It was through these difficult times that she developed an unwavering love and admiration for veterans and their families. She has followed her passion to serve veterans and their family members ever since. Through years of hard work, grit, and perseverance, she has facilitated hundreds of veteran equine therapy sessions along with her team, Marla Neely LPC and Robert Knapick Ph.D.. The team is growing and now facilitating on a private, 10 acre ranch in Montgomery, Texas called Sunny Creek Ranch. Sessions are confidential, private and provided at NO COST to veterans, first responders, and their families/caregivers. Because Sunny Creek Ranch is veteran operated, the unique challenges that our heroes face is understood. www.sunnycreekranch.com
