      • Russ Lewis, an expert packing guide, mustang trainer and published author on the subject, is both an advocate and proponent of the amazing abilities of the mustang. He first started working with mustangs in the early 80’s, when he discovered their unique qualities, mostly unrecognized at that time – resilience intelligence, endurance, dependability and savvy – qualities uniquely suited to hard work in the Alaskan and wild Montana wilderness. Russ was also part of the famous 500 Mile pack trip documentary by Heroes and Horses, playing an integral role in both preparation and participation, helping to ensure their expedition was successful. Russ, who served as a United States Marine, continues to be involved with the Heroes and Horses combat veterans program, supporting both veterans and the mustangs they partner with. Demo days and times TBA.
      • Katherine Boucher, of the upcoming Women in the Wilderness film, will be on site to assist Russ and share info about the documentary. Demo days, times and more info TBA.
