Meet Our Founders,
Jeanne Springer and Billy Jack Barrett

Remount Foundation grew out of necessity. Jeanne Springer and Billy Jack Barrett were working at the riding stables at the U.S. Air Force Academy with cadets and other military members when they began to realize the horses were helping injured veterans. Word got out around the Colorado Springs military community and soon wounded combat veterans were calling from all branches of service. Jeanne and Billy Jack have trained horses for decades, with the Remount Foundation culminating as the most fulfilling part of their life work.

Our Board of Directors

Dr. David R. Andrews, Purple Heart Recipient

Dr. David Andrews is a combat-wounded veteran, retiring from 21 years of active duty after being wounded-in-action in Afghanistan. He is a Wounded Warrior scholar and alumni of the Remount Foundation’s equine assisted learning program. As with many Wounded Warriors, David struggled to recover from his injuries and adjust to life with a permanent disability. David credits the equine assisted learning program with helping him regain his footing and find renewed purpose and direction in his life. With the love and support of his wife and their four children, David has gone on to complete a doctorate and in 2015 was awarded the Secretary of Defense’s Outstanding Department of Defense Civilian Employee with a Disability; living proof that the first steps taken–the first time getting back into the saddle–in equine assisted learning can lead Wounded Warriors to greener pastures of peace and prosperity.

Vice President
Mr. Marvin Boyd enjoyed a long and successful career as an executive at Phil Long Ford dealerships. He retired in 2006, and began the next chapter in his life, as an entrepreneur.
