The Wild In Us - Ataxia awareness

Trent plans to ride from Mexico to Canada by traveling length of the Pacific Crest Trail with wild mustangs that he adopted from the Bureau of Land Managements (BLM) holding facility in Susanville, California. Trent will gentle and train the mustangs, then travel the length of the PCT to promote and raise awareness for Ataxia, which is a hereditary disease that took Trent's fathers life from him. By choosing the mustang to complete this journey, he hopes to raise awareness for the challenges wild horses face both in the wild and in holding facilities. Ultimately he hopes to raise awareness and donations for both foundations to keep the wild in us alive…

In order to complete this ride and continue this mission, he also needs your support. He needs people to physically support him along the way by meeting him on the trail to re-supply (supplies for him as well as the mustangs in areas where there is limited grazing) while he makes his way north. Any donation is greatly appreciated. In the next year, he needs to feed the mustangs while he gentles and gets them trained at the Rock'n B Ranch and the Double L Ranch in preparation for this journey.  

He has set up this GoFundMe page so that you can donate to the ride. Any and all monies left over from the Go Fund Me fundraising campaign donated in Gary Peterson's name. At the end of this journey, he will sell the mustangs and all proceeds will be donated.

What your donation can help pay for:
$15 - Buys us a bale of hay 
$60 - A set of horse shoes
$75 - Will feed one Mustang for a Month 
$225 - Will feed all three for a month
$400 - Fuel for the resuply truck for a month 
$500 - Pay for the Adoption fee's 
$1000 - Back up Vet budget 
$1,200 - A months worth of food for Trent while on the trail. 

Thank you for your support!
