AHC announces November 15, 2021
Webinar featuring Compton Cowboys Founder – Randy Savvy
(Washington, D.C., September 14, 2021): For our final webinar of 2021, the American Horse Council is delighted to host Randy Savvy of the Compton Cowboys on Monday, November 15th at 1:00 PM ET.
Randy, a born and raised cowboy, is also an entertainer and activist. His family founded the Compton Jr. Posse in 1988, a non-profit equestrian program using horses to keep kids off the streets.
The social climate of Compton in the 1990’s was troubled — crime, drugs, gangs and other issues were rampant city-wide. The ranch and horses of the Compton Jr. Posse kept Randy, his twin brother Carlton, and many other local youth, distracted from street life by providing them a robust outdoors lifestyle through equestrian activities.
Randy formally established the “Compton Cowboys” in 2017, which expanded to include his closest friends from childhood who grew up riding in the Jr. Posse with him. They are still together today paying it forward by introducing kids to horses both local and abroad through their work on the world stage.
Randy holds a BA in Sociology from Occidental College and an MA in Music Administration from California State University, Northridge. He aspires to leave a lasting positive impact on the world through art, business, and philanthropy, though working with horses to pave the way for future generations.
To register for webinar, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than November 12th and we’ll send you a zoom link with meeting details.
