Susan Bump broke and trained horses for over 30 years. An ex-thoroughbred racehorse trainer in Southern California, she had to quit when she realized that she was part of the problem rather than part of the solution.

Susan eventually became a human and animal rights activist. A member of San Diego Animal Defense team, Susan successfully protested inhumane pet stores in San Diego leading to criminal charges against the owners.

She was arrested for trespassing in the small town of Valley Center, Ca. when she gave water to dying animals on a hot summer day. Her story made front page news in the local paper. So many animal lovers supported her in court that the newspapers called them her 'entourage.'

She currently lives with her eight wonderful dogs on a 47,000 acre, Arizona ranch in a 100-year-old adobe house in the magical town of Arivaca.

Susan Bump was the daughter of an alcoholic and bipolar mother, and an alcoholic abusive father, and consequently, she grew up hating life.

After realizing that she was indeed special, and worthy, her life has become fantastic. This is her Wild Ride.
