A Horseback Ride Across the USA

What is the biggest takeaway from your last trip?

‘Theme’ week continues on the Zero to Travel Podcast as you’ll hear another story of travel with a four-legged friend.

Meet Jesse (aka Alex) and his horse Pepper. They took off on an amazing 8-month journey across the USA from the Pacific to the Atlantic. Check out Jesse’s story on his facebook page, On the Hoof, Sea to Sea.

Jesse took a few similar trips on a moped and flying a small plane. He also rode a motorcycle across the country and bicycled across Canada (where the idea for the Horse trip was born!).

He shares with you his journey within the journey.
