September 11, 2001 for many veterans was the reason why they enlisted into the military. For so many, it is where it all began, and so it only seemed fitting to endure the 20 miles on horseback to honor and fight for those whom we have lost. The 20-mile ride trails through the heart of the city passing Times Square, Central Park and the Freedom Tower.
DC is a new addition in 2018 to help spread awareness across the country. As the capital of our great nation and only four hours away from NYC, DC was added to the 2018 tour to allow for more veteran participation. The route is currently in the planning stages.
“I’m hoping for less lost brothers and sisters resulting in less miles! I’m looking forward to riding with more Brothers and Sisters, Patriots, and Mounted Patrolmen, to get our answer out to the suffering veterans of America. Thank you for the opportunity to continue to give to those who gave their all. Thank God for Great Horses!” – Mitchell Reno, Trail to Zero Veteran
