“Since Donna (Donna Wieblehaus, Director of Spirit Horse Liberty) began her mission, we have been looking for an opportunity to work together and produce an educational event and competition to benefit Spirit Horse Liberty. This summer, we were able to secure a good source of cattle from Henderson Liberty Farms of Texas, helping make this event possible.”                                                                                                                                                              – Brian Sumrall, SHS Cattle Co.
