Nonprofit BraveHearts is the largest program in the country offering healing horsemanship to military veterans at no cost.
In the Houston Trail to Zero ride, participants will include therapy horses, veterans along with The Houston Mounted Police Unit. In addition, the ride in Houston will be the first Trail to Zero ride that the public will be able to register to complete the 20-mile ride (bring your own horse).
