FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
The Climate Cowboy™ is the charity part of Hearts & Horses.
Making environmental friendly ultra endurance journeys.
The concept is as follows:
To ride a horse and run on foot for long and or challenging distances through different countries.
For raising awareness of the climate changes and the environmental impacts we as humans are doing to this planet.

My latest project: Riding For Hope!
In July 2018 i went on a journey down through Sweden from the artic cirle in the north and down to my ranch in the south. A journey of 1900km in only 30 days.
With 2 horses and my running shoes i traveled over high mountians, through rivers, lakes and big cities. Went through beautiful valleys and wonderful country.
Me and the horses were completely plant powered/vegan, and also powered by Forever Living Products – Aloe Vera and supplements, through the journey. We had to overcome several challenges, such as blistering colds in the north, high and steep mountains, severe heat, lack of food and water and lack of sleep.
Also at one point the horses broke out of their overnight pasture and dissapeared for 27 hours up on a mountain in the northern wilderness.
We met a lot of great people and experienced humanity from their absolute best side. I ran on foot a 3rd of the total distance and the horses took me willinly through the rest. There were both blood, sweat, tears and laughter on the journey and we made a difference.
The story behind this adventure and the reason I will do this endurance ride through Sweden, comes from several years of looking for something I didn´t know what was. I have for a long time been searching for the thing that could take me further and make a larger impact in the world than what I was currently doing.
Then three things happened.
I met my long-time idol and role model Dr. Sylvia Earle in Gothenburg at The Perfect World Foundation´s Ocean Ball. A charity event we donated some money to, for saving the oceans and the animals within it. That was a highlight and started a spark within me to also make a become a difference in the world of the environment and the people within it.
Then some time later I listened to The Rich Roll Podcast with James Lawrence aka. The Iron Cowboy, who had just done 50 Ironmans in 50 States in 50 Days. All for raising funds to the cause of Childhood Obesity.
That set the spark on fire and started creating ideas in my head. I wanted to do something similar, so I thought that the things I know that I can do is to work hard and dedicated and ride horses.
Those two attributes in combination became this challenge, but what really got me on fire and totally committed was listening to another Rich Roll Podcast with Scott Harrison and Charity Water. I was on the treadmill training and Scott shared a story about a little girl who gave up her birthday, ended up dying but through her story raised millions.
Because of that story of people doing unselfish stuff actually made burst out crying while running on the treadmill and having many people look at me funny.
That was where I decided to get involved with Charity Water. (www.charitywater.org)
Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean!
But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me.
100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.
