The All Glory Project seeks to promote, foster and support programs that utilize animal-assisted therapies in aiding military veterans and their families. We are a non-profit campaign of consciousness to thank our wounded heroes, human and animal alike, as well as their families. Through Advocation, Education and Enablement, we help centers already in existence to initiate and expand programs for all those affected by military service.
"All Glory to the souls that serve, Human and Animal alike." -- Elizabeth Shatner
|Elizabeth and our mascot All Glory
The All Glory Project was begun at the 2010 BreyerFest in Lexington, KY. William and Elizabeth's Shatner's Standardbred, All Glory, was chosen to be the 2010 Celebration Horse. While in Lexington, Elizabeth became familiar with Central Kentucky Riding For Hope and partnered with many prominent community members to secure donations from several sponsors (including AT&T, Breyer Animal Creations, The KY Horse Park Gift Shop, The American Saddlebred Museum, Stone Horses and Elizabeth Shatner's Art by Nature) to help fund a pilot program of Horses for Heroes at the Lexington Central Kentucky Riding for Hope facility. Since that time CKRH has been able to bring hope and healing to veterans. Physically, they see improvements in such areas as balance, strength, flexibility and posture. Emotionally, the interaction with horses helps improve communication, self-confidence and team building.
Next, the Shatner's world champion Saddlebred sire, Call Me Ringo was sculpted by Katherine Bogucki for the Peter Stone Company. This model has also become part of the All Glory Project's mission to educate the public about opportunites to support equine-assisted therapy. When purchasing the model on the Stone Horses site, the option is available to make a donation to the Central Kentucky Riding for Hope to support their Horses for Heroes Program.
The All Glory Project is continually networking with different organizations to bring them on board with the overall goal of extending support and gratitude to our veterans. The Hollywood Charity Horse Show began supporting the project in 2010, allowing us to co-present a special educational section of the horse show about equine services for our military. The All Glory Project is affiliated with, and fiscally sponsored by, the registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit Dream Catcher of LA Therpeutic Riding Centers.
