Heroes and Horses, a three-phase reintegration program for veterans with PTSD, was founded by ex-Navy Seal Micah Fink and is offered to qualifying veterans at no cost. It utilizes the remote wilderness of Montana, in addition to the connection between horses and humans, to challenge and inspire personal growth in veterans suffering from mental and physical scars.
Heroes and Horses is the final episode of a three-part feature video series highlighting the critical and effective role that horses play in addressing the epidemic of U.S. military veterans returning from combat with PTSD.
