Keynote program at the 2015 American Trails International Trails Symposium with these presenters (see their bios):

Hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding trail therapy programs
for our nation’s wounded veterans are proving to be among the most successful methods of helping our injured service members overcome the ravages of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). America’s trails are providing some of the best healing, challenging, and confidence-building environments to help America’s military service heroes.

A national panel of hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian trail program leaders share their military veteran on-the- trails programs and success stories. Trails are helping many war-injured service veterans become stronger in mind, body, and spirit. Become a part of this national effort to provide trail experiences to help injured service members recover from both physical and unseen wounds of war in your own community, organization, or land management agency.

You can purchase the 30-minute full documentary film "Riding My Way Back" for $20.00 online: www.ridingmywayback.com/purchase-dvdposter/
