The Trek Hero Horse
The Trek Hero Horse is an honor given to a horse for work performed on behalf of mankind in an extraordinary manner. Besides our Trek Horses who have to earn the title of Hero by putting in a specific number of hours and miles for the organization we have special therapy horses, police horses, military and search and rescue horses all who could be eligible for nomination for this honor.
Military uses horses primarily for ceremonial purposes but this does not exclude them in anyway. In fact we have men deployed in other countries who use horses in part of their regular patrol work. Special Forces men and woman frequently use horse to cover rough terrain.
Any horse that is being used by our Soldiers oversees and finds its way back to the United States can be honored by this organization once a nomination is received. We know that our soldiers often bring home dogs they have become valued companions...I image one day we will see horses too.
