Show Notes

Hey folks, welcome to the show. Today’s episode is perhaps my favorite yet, with a very special group called Heroes and Horses. Rick Franco ivited me as a welcoming gesture for moving to Montana, and I happened to have heard a bit about this program prior to him reaching out to me. For those of you who have not seen the “500 Miles” film or “180 out” we have it linked below. Rick discusses the forty day program for veterans with PTSD and wild horses from Oregon. I hope you all enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed talking to Rick about this awesome program.
