Meet Our Founders

Mr Billy Jack Barrett

A legend in the cowboy and horse community and a US Army veteran from the Vietnam era, Mr. Barrett – the last horse buyer for Fort Carson’s 4/12 Cavalry program and over 40 years as the manager of the US Air Force Academy Equestrian Center – noted the healing effect that horses had on combat-wounded veterans. Through his work in the horse industry, Mr. Barrett worked with Audie Murphy (the most decorated US soldier of WWII); General AP Clarke (WWII prisoner of war and former Superintendent of the US Air Force Academy); General Macke Steinhoff (Germany’s leading fighter pilot ace in WWII); and countless other veterans of the wars in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
