PAMELA RICHENBACH www.equiculture.org "I had the good fortune to spend a great deal of my life in the Bolivian Amazon, along with time in the Peruvian and Bolivian Andes. My life in South America with the people and the earth greatly shaped me into the person I am today. I care deeply about Mother Earth and my human family. I have come to understand Horses as ancient helpers to humankind on our road to arriving at our shared destiny of creating Peace on Earth.
The years I drove as carriage driver and tour guide in the National Park in Philadelphia are some of my happiest. Not only did I fall in love with this country through learning the details of the founding of our country, I fell more deeply in love with horses. Everywhere you go in early America, their hoof prints are right alongside us. Their stories are woven together with ours, creating a shared tapestry of hard work, pain, hope and inspiration and love."
