Amanda Held, a veteran and lifelong equestrian, felt compelled to help her fellow American military veterans to heal from the psychological impacts of armed combat and tours of duty. Leaning on her lifelong experience and love of horses, she formed Healing of Veterans through Equine-Assisted Service, commonly known as H.O.O.V.E.S. Veterans of the United States military services enter into the H.O.O.V.E.S. program whose mission is to use rescue horses to heal and empower them through training exercises. Getting Stable follows both Amanda as she runs the program and the participants themselves as they both seek the power of healing from interacting with horses.
