    This may be the first time you have heard of Raina Marie Paucar, but we guarantee it won't be the last.
    We had the pleasure of talking with her about her journey in the horse industry, her journey as an entrepreneur and the vision she has for her future. She has experienced so much of the industry from obtaining her jockey license and working on a racetrack to bodywork and rehabilitation. Now, as she brings her novel idea to market, Raina speaks to the entrepreneur in all of us! She shares what her 3 year journey has taught her about passion and perseverance.

    UNCOVER: Dezmine Washington

    UNCOVER: Dezmine Washington

    When we asked Dezmine about her viral Tiktok videos she asked, "Which one?"
    When we asked Dezmine to tell us about her herd of animals she said, "All of them?"
    That paints a pretty good picture of how Dezmine popped into our lives and has been making us laugh ever since.
    Growing up in a predominantly white area, Dezmine didn't see other Black equestrians until she drove a couple of hours away last summer to a Justice for George Floyd protest. She has always been one to carve a lane for herself and does so with her animals in tow.

    UNCOVER: Fredrick Crump

    It all started with a horse named Red. Fredrick got his start in the horse industry by rehoming kill pen horses and learning the lessons that come with retraining and rehabbing animals with traumatic experiences.
    As a competitive person, he dabbled in a bunch of different disciplines to find his perfect fit. He went through barrel racing, dressage, roping, team penning, and mounted archery before finding a sport he and his horse enjoyed, cowboy mounted shooting. He took his first lesson in November 2019 and competed in his first event in February 2020.
    In this episode, Fredrick shares with us his challenges and triumphs with horses and with the industry. Connect with Fredrick on all social media platforms @mounted_medic !

So glad I found you

I’m a 34 year old black woman and horse novice who just started riding regularly and taking lessons! And I was so uplifted to find this podcast. Thank you!

YBE newbie

Just discovered this podcast. What an awesome endeavor. I’m a farrier in Maryland and wish I could be involved in your program. I hope you all are successful building your facilities down in North Carolina...
