Meggan Hill-McQueeney

Meggan Hill-McQueeney’s passion for horses led her to competing, ranching, running various horse operations and coaching. She started two successful therapeutic riding programs, serving as a PATH International Master Level Instructor, a Special Olympics Coach, and a USEF Para Olympic Coach. Stepping into the leadership role, in 2010, as President of BraveHearts Therapeutic Riding and Educational Center, she transformed the organization into the largest horsemanship program for US military veterans in the country. Meggan initiated Trail to Zero, overseeing and riding horseback 20-miles with veterans and mounted police units, in major cities across the world, to bring an end to veteran suicide through healing horsemanship.
