Jonny Fitzsimons grew up on a cattle ranch in South Texas. He’s been on horseback since he could walk and is an accomplished horseman with skills in polo and training horses. He graduated from Texas A&M December 2012 from the School of Liberal Arts with a History degree. Jonny alternated his summers between working on a horse ranch in Argentina, chasing poachers in Tanzania, and working dude and cattle ranch in Southern Wyoming. He is currently working as a petroleum landman in Texas. Jonny is the guy you can rely on to get things done, and stay calm in a crisis. He is razor sharp, has a wonderful dry sense of humor, and his experienced horsemanship was a huge asset to the team.
Bam-Bam was a linebacker powerhouse of a mustang. He jumped logs like a mule deer and attacked the trail with furiously quick hoof beats.
Heath Weber brought us Cricket in southern Utah. He passed away from natural causes near Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It was very sad to lose a member of the team but satisfying to know that he died in the wild where he belonged, not in a holding pen.
Django had a quick step to cover miles fast and a light mouth to get you there in style. He was the kind of horse you could rely on in any situation.
Just relaxing. Getting down the trail quickly was not a high priority. We often found JR rolling in fields of flowers.
Tamale was a no-nonsense, well-made mustang. He suffered a bowed tendon in Arizona that took him out of the trip, except for a few days in Montana’s Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex. His injury flared in the Bob, and he was retired before reaching the Canadian line.
