    Sunday, February 3rd, 2019 is a day that Tim Allen's  family, friends and the entire Dripping Springs community will never forget. Tim and his son Will were involved in a near fatal auto accident.  Tim's first sight of Will told him that he had lost him.  It was a terrifying moment that he'll live with for the rest of his life.  He was able to wedge himself out of the front door of his truck but immediately collapsed to the pavement when his feet hit the ground.  He'd had suffered serious internal injuries and couldn’t get to Will.  Seconds later a pedestrian came to help them and that’s when Tim heard what may be the best sound he'll ever hear in his life.  It was Will crying.  It told him that he was alive and that he hadn’t lost his baby boy. The journey that followed is one full of hope, faith and love and led to the creation of the WillPower Community Foundation.

    Ep.53 What is "Unbound Horsemanship?" (Camille Carson and Timea Chemez of Driftwood Horse Rescue and Sanctuary)

    Ep.53 What is "Unbound Horsemanship?" (Camille Carson and Timea Chemez of Driftwood Horse Rescue and Sanctuary)

    Monologue:
    Goals and Resolutions for 2023Motivation vs DisciplineRule of 1/3'sWeird True Facts (WTF) Little known horse factsGuests;
    When Camille Carson was a little girl and spending time with her horse Detaunt, there was no schedule, no show, and no agenda.  There wasn’t anyone telling them how they were supposed to do things and how they weren’t.  They learned how to listen to one another, how to trust one another, and how to build connection and willingness to explore one another's boundaries and capacities. With that, they rode and jumped bareback and bridleless, they galloped up mountainsides, swam in rivers, sat and ate blackberries together.  Doing it “right” or “wrong,” being on a schedule or agenda, none of this ever came into play. They were just doing it for the joy,  the trust, the love, and the connection that they had with each other in partnership. Because of this connection and that true partnership, they felt they were able to do anything together.  
    Camille Carson started Driftwood Horse Rescue and Sanctuary because of her love of horses and to battle the slaughter pipeline for horses in the US.  She recently was joined by Timea Chemez as the Executive Director.  
    They discuss the journey to running a horse rescue facility and all the daily challenges and blessings that have come out of it.
