Heroes And Horses

by frank
April 15, 2018

frank spent 24 hours with Micah Fink, the founder of Heroes and Horses, at his Montana home, office, and ranch. Heroes and Horses is a Montana-based nonprofit organization that has created an innovative, three-phase reintegration program, which is offered to qualifying combat veterans (at no cost to them) suffering from PTSD. Their program utilizes the remote wilderness of Montana, coupled with human and horse connections to challenge and inspire personal growth in veterans suffering from mental and phsyical scars. Micah and his team at HH opened their doors to frank so we could watch the process of training a mustang for ourselves, and get to know Micah more intimately. 

Below are a select series of photographs by Griffin Snyder for frank news.
