The Standardbred Retirement Foundation's horses had a presence at the ‘Trail to Zero’ ride in Manhattan on Saturday, September 15. They participated in the effort to raise awareness of suicide among veteran servicemen and women.

The ride was 20 miles long and represented the number of veterans who take their own lives each day.

The Newark, NJ Mounted Unit has 14 SRF horses serving, and numerous cities across the country are staffed with this ‘Brainiac Breed’ from SRF (several prison patrol units, as well as Sheriff Departments, including Texas – NYC still has just one).

With more than 4,000 adoptions, SRF feels it can bring together enough adopters to participate in 2020 to support this effort to help veterans in the United States.

"I feel very strongly about supporting this," one adopter expressed. "Next year I will help coordinate it, and appreciate the help of any other adopters to make it happen."

SRF will keep a list of those interested in participating and will contact all in 2020. Email your interest to [email protected].

SRF would like to thank Robbie Siegleman for recognizing SRF's horses and photographing them.
