One woman. One horse. 48 states for Domestic Violence Awareness

Check back often for the latest updates and stories from Meredith and Apollo as they journey 10,000 miles on a four year ride around the USA.

Have Horse Will Travel podcast (S1E6): How we plan the route

Step One: Ask Apollo!
Riding over 10,000 miles through all the lower 48 states is not a simple matter of hopping in the saddle and riding off into the sunset(s).  It took years of planning, daily flexibility, and a bit of magic to make it work.  Oh, and of course a horse with excellent map reading skills.
Also, our guest Peggy Delgado Fava from Sacramento's Bridge Network talks about human trafficking.
Listen weekly as Meredith and Apollo share about their multi-year 48-state journey (The Centauride), talk with interesting guests, and discuss the realities of domestic abuse.
