It was 2009 and the stock market was not doing its best. Broker, John Montgomery was on the forefront of the turmoil and turned his stress into anger and began to erupt on his coworkers. He was asked to take leave of absence and seek an anger managment facility. One of his few options included a dude ranch in California. This placement changed Johnâ€™s life forever. He was able to gain a deeper understanding of the human/animal connection and learned a great deal about himself as a delagator and leader. It was also then that he decided he must find a way to bring this to New York.
