Ariat Honors Military Members with New Boot Collection and Support for Non-Profit
Feb 28, 2013
Ariat is pleased to announce a new line of Western boots for men, women and kids called the Freedom Collection. These unique boots are detailed with patriotic and military-themed stitch patterns and a digital camo print lining to honor the men and women of the armed forces. In addition to the intricate embroidery, the Freedom Collection features Ariat’s premium full-grain leathers and innovative comfort technology. Along with creating the military-inspired Freedom Collection, Ariat is also supporting PATH Intl. Equine Services for Heroes (formerly NARHA Horses for Heroes), a non-profit organization that provides equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) to wounded service personnel and veterans. PATH Intl. Equine Services for Heroes is tailored to address specific issues faced by military personnel and provides supportive and therapeutic environments for their families and loved ones. To accomplish this mission, PATH Intl. centers connect with Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers and Clinics, as well as individual veterans. “We are delighted to have Ariat International provide support for our organization,” said PATH Intl. CEO Kay Marsh Green. “Our wounded service personnel and veterans have given their best in service to our country, and we at PATH Intl. want to ensure that they in turn will receive the best services that we have to offer. Ariat contributions will be a tremendous support to our centers, horses and participants in providing positive change to these deserving individuals.” Ariat wants to say a huge thank you to all the men and women who have served and are currently serving in the armed forces!
