Trail to Zero
BraveHearts provides innovative equine-assisted activities and therapies in support of children, adults, and our military veterans. Located in Harvard and Poplar Grove Illinois, BraveHearts has the largest horse program in the country for military veterans; all veterans receive services at no cost. In 2016, BraveHearts provided 12,962 equine sessions to 639 veterans from across the country. Through collaboration with equestrian and US Gold Medalist Aaron Ralston and the NYPD mounted police, a team of BraveHearts staff and veterans completed a 22-mile trail ride in New York City. The ride brought awareness of the 22 veterans who commit suicide each day in the U.S. while also raising funds for the BraveHearts veterans program.
