The Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride is a multi-day riding event that helps veterans build their confidence and strength through shared physical activities and bonds of service in a supportive environment. The program incorporates skill-building practices that accommodate all ability levels. The Warriors never ride alone; they move together forward, as a unit, just as they did during their military service.

The Wounded Warrior Project is a nonprofit organization that helps provide support in obtaining benefits, financial support, peer support and both mental and physical support.
