“From Civil War battlefields to the World Trade Center’s Ground Zero”
Tuesday, March 19, 2019. 7:00 PM
Catherine Hunter talks and shares photographs of her incredible solo journey—a 1,000 mile ride for Peace on her horse “Count of War”. A Q&A will follow.
Hear stories of being lost in the mountains with no food or water.
Share feelings of doubt and despair when there was no shelter for the
night. Experience blessed relief and renewal of faith as perfect
strangers stepped up to help.
Journey with Peace Rider Catherine Hunter, and her Thoroughbred,
Count of War, as she recalls her nearly 1,000 mile ride from South
Carolina to Ground Zero in New York City. Catherine and Count rode
completely alone, with no back up vehicle, carrying only a spare blanket, an extra pair of jeans and a change of socks stowed in their saddle bags.
Hear what inspired a Civil War Cavalry reenactor, suffering from traumatic brain injury, to take such a formidable journey to spread the word of world peace. Find out how together, Catherine and Count,
faced tremendous challenges of fear and faith, learned how to suspend judgement and discovered how to receive help and inspiration from unlikely sources.
“I remember days when I was on some lonely, back road, hundreds of miles from home, and it would suddenly hit me how very alone I was,” Hunter said. “Then someone would stop to offer a bottle of water or assure me I was on the right road, and I would have the strength to keep going—just a little farther.”
