NYC - 2017, 2018, 2019, 2021
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. The 2021 ride will take place on October 16, 2021.
Washington DC - 2018 & 2019
As the capital of our great nation and only four hours away from NYC, DC was chosen to help spread awareness for the ride and give BraveHearts the opportunity to reach more veterans, expanding the ride.
Chicago - 2019 & 2021
Chicago, is the major city home to BraveHearts. We are proud to represent our beloved city and are currently working on the planning stages of the ride. The 2021 ride will take place on September 18, 2021.
Houston - 2020

Lexington, KY- 2020 & 2021
On September 25, 2020 – we rode in Lexington, KY at the Kentucky Horse Park and adjacent farm. This city was chosen after being invited to ride by Equitana, the largest horse expo in the country! After COVID-19 hit, we pivoted from riding in the city to these incredible farms as they have graciously welcomed us to help serve our mission. The 2021 ride will take place on October 1, 2021 during Equitana!
Bull Valley, IL - 2020 & 2021
On October 11, 2020- we rode at a private horse farm in Bull Valley, IL. After the spread of COVID-19, this farm welcomed us with open arms so we could fulfill our mission of Trail to Zero even featuring a virtual component in 2020.The 2021 ride took place on September 10, 2021.
Fort Wayne, IN - 2021
Fort Wayne, IN is our newest city to be added to Trail to Zero! We have been blessed with an incredible planning group headed by military veteran residents of Fort Wayne. The 2021 ride will take place on October 9, 2021.
“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
