Help Riding Wild's women of wisdom!

Lise and Aniela Gottwald had their home burn to the ground on Camino Cielo Road in Ojai in the Thomas Fire.

They focused their energy and attention on evacuating their three wild mustang horses into safety. They were unable to save hardly any of their possessions and necessities from the home they were renting. 

This mother and daughter team is a powerful one! They are spending their time training and caring for three wild mustang horses in preparation for a 4,000 mile ride next year. Here is a little bit more about their project:

These women are a true blessing in our community. They move through life with such grace, kindness and depth. They are true warrior women and need the help of community at this time!

Please help to support them in replacing and rebuilding a home of comfort and safety once again! They will need to buy everything again and find a new home in which to live... all the while taking care of their horses. 

I am a dear friend who has know them for some time and they inspire me daily!
