We focus on what is possible, not on what we have lost. The worst disability is a bad attitude. Michael Muir – Director Access Adventure
Michael Muir is a trailblazer, much like his ancestors. His disability could have gotten the horse rancher down, but instead, he turned it around. He helps returning veterans and those with disabilities such as lack of mobility live a life of adventure. Special rigs and equipment fitted for safety allow people in wheelchairs to sit in a horse-drawn wagon or cart and experience the thrill of being behind the reigns, or simply riding with a driver doing the steering and commands.

Making wild places accessible to people with disabilities. When John Muir first arrived in California by ship, he was bewildered and overwhelmed by the raucous energy of San Francisco in 1869.
He asked a passerby the quickest way out of the city. "Well, where do you want to go?" the stranger inquired.
Anywhere Wild! said Muir. John Muir's great-grandson is blazing a new trail into the wilderness, opening a path to be traveled by people with disabilities. Fairfield, California horseman Michael Muir, 62, has lived with multiple sclerosis since he was 15 years old. Refusing to be daunted by the relentless course of his disease, Muir believes in challenging the limits of disability.
In 2001, he led an international team of people with disabilities driving wheelchair accessible horsedrawn carriages on a three thousand mile, ten month Journey Across America. Now, after traveling by horse and carriage through seven countries, the extraordinary adventures of HorseJourney have led to the founding of Anywhere Wild!
