About Heroes and Horses
To use the remote wilderness, and the horse / human connection to challenge, and inspire growth in veterans suffering from mental and physical scars.
We re-galvanize our nation’s veterans so they can rediscover who they are, and can be after 13 years of war. Heroes and Horses focus is not about what happened, but what can happen if you choose to drive on.
Wilderness challenges that invoke change, and develop new ways to approach, and solve problems.
We provide extreme Expedition style horse pack trips that teach self-reliance, teamwork, and help veterans move past the struggles men and women face after years of war, internal and external.
H&H aims to build a community of veterans, donors and volunteers who are involved and engaged.

Does it work? As veterans ourselves, we know how it is to be treated different and “felt sorry for”. Heroes and Horses challenging program changes self-perception in our veterans, giving them tools that they can use to heal and forge ahead. Through our difficult program and the core values that guide our proven philosophy we will re shape the way our American warriors are treated and perceived.
