Tina Brodrick - Horses have been a focus of Tina’s life since she was a child. 20 years ago she became inspired by a “Horse Whisperer”, Robin Keller, who had the ability to socialize wild horses so they could find good homes. Tina moved in Reno 2008 and started hearing conflicting stories about wild horse issues in the area. Uncovering the truth motivated her to start a guide service called Sonny Boys Tours (named after her Dad – his southern nickname). Her mission is to gently educate and inspire a personal connection to these powerful and fragile beings that run the desert range.
