BACKTRACK BOYS BY CATHERINE SCOTT IS A POWERFUL STORY OF LOVE AND SAVING LIVES
A group of troubled boys are on a perilous course towards jail until they meet up with the rough talking, free-wheeling jackaroo, Bernie Shakeshaft, and hit the road with his legendary dog jumping team.
With awareness generated by the Backtrack Boys documentary community interest in starting up BackTrack style programs across the country remains strong. Most recently @BacktrackYouthWorks have welcomed @RuffTrack in the Hawkesbury region to our list of community partners. Led by Dave Graham who BackTrack has shared the dog jumping arena with, and the Hawkesbury Police Command, some terrific results are coming out of this trial program. Host a screening to make a change in your community. https://buff.ly/2DrYIIX
What have the BackTrack Youth Works girls been up to? Recently they hit the road and headed to Queensland for a week working with horses. This trip was made possible by Leading the Way International The girls had an extraordinary few days intensively connecting with and working with the horses to learn, share, heal and grow as a herd via the Liberty method. Liberty work involves working with a horse without any ropes, leads or halters – all through respect, trust and communication.
