Buck the Trend Info & Episodes

Buck the Trend is a pilot mental health forum, run under the 501 c 3 non profit organization, Best Horse Practices Summit, for cowboys, farriers, trainers, and others in our horse community. It is a two-and-a-half day, all expenses paid workshop focused on skill-building and elevating the mental health conversation in our community. Supported by an initial grant from the LOR Foundation and with gear provided by Patagonia Workwear, it’s an opportunity to focus on ourselves for a moment, so that we can enhance and improve what’s around us, specifically, the well-being of those close to us, humans and non-humans alike, as well as the greater horse community.  Donate here
