U.S. Battery and one of its distributors Battery Systems provided eight golf car batteries to Horses 4 Heroes, a Las Vegas-based non-profit organization that runs an equestrian center to provide affordable riding activities for veterans, at-risk youth, and more. The batteries they received, U.S. Battery’s US12VXC deep-cycle 12-volts, will be used in two of the organization’s golf cars that were donated last summer to help the group get around its 680 acre facility. “When we heard how much eight batteries cost, we had no choice but to let the golf carts sit until such time as we could afford to buy batteries or raise the funds,” said Sydney Knott, President/CEO/Founder of Horses 4 Heroes. “So we are simply and completely overwhelmed, grateful, and honored that U.S. Battery and Battery Systems are willing to do this for us.”
Horses 4 Heroes provides affordable horseback riding activities for Active Duty service members, veterans, first responders and their families. The organization also provides free or low-cost “EAL” (Equine Assisted Learning) workshops for at-risk youth, veterans with PTS/MST/TBI, victims of domestic abuse and violence, and recovering addicts. “This organization does a lot to help people discover that horses can provide great enjoyment and therapy,” says Dan Grigsby, Western States Regional Manager for U.S. Battery. “We were happy to partner with one of our dealers to provide Horses 4 Heros with the most reliable batteries on the market so their golf cars can run longer and last a long time with proper maintenance.”
The Horses 4 Heroes’ Community Equestrian Center, is located within Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs, in Las Vegas, Nevada and has more than 300 affiliates in 45 states plus Canada.
