Lexington, VA – October 22, 2014 – Hoofbeats Therapeutic Riding Center is pleased to announce a screening of “Riding My Way Back.” The new award winning, short documentary about the powerful healing of therapeutic riding for a veteran with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury will be screened at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington, Virginia on Thursday, November 13, 2014 at 7:00 P.M. in the Horse Center’s Mezzanine. Tickets are available for $5.00 at the door with proceeds benefiting Hoofbeats Therapeutic Riding Center. Light refreshments will be provided.

“Riding My Way Back” chronicles one soldier’s journey back from the brink of suicide. In 2010, Staff Sergeant Aaron Heliker returned from multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). At his most desperate and isolated, on 42 medications and feeling suicidal, Heliker is introduced to the unlikeliest of saviors: a horse named Fred. Through caring for Fred, Heliker begins the difficult process of reconnecting to those around him and healing the invisible wounds of war that nearly defeated him.

Producers and directors, Oscar Nominee Robin Fryday, Peter Rosenbaum and Richie Goldman have launched an ambitious program: the Riding My Way Back Film Project. Engaging the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH International) centers nationwide the film will be screened at riding centers, universities and mental health centers simultaneously during Veteran’s Week 2014. While “Riding My Way Back” had its premiere at the GI Film Festival 2014 in May of this year and won The Founders’ Choice Award, the producers of the film are looking at Veteran’s Week 2014 as their national launch, premiering the movie at the Capitol Visitor Center in Washington, D.C., and at over 75 Equine Centers across the country.
