If you’re a Chicagoan, you have seen Adam Hollingsworth, better know as the Dread Head Cowboy, riding his horse throughout the city. Adam spoke with Ji about becoming a viral sensation, riding along with the protesters over the weekend, being falsely accused of stealing a horse from the police on social media, his car being vandalized, and what it like owning five horses. Adam has a GoFundMe so he can teach children in his community how to ride & take care of horses and travel to other inner-city areas! To contribute, visit www.gofundme.com/f/dreadhead.
