“Mommas don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys!” Welp, Jared’s momma paid no mind to that advice. Jared is the oldest of three and spent his younger years ripping and romping all over Pike County, GA. Y’all will be hard pressed to run across some adventure ol’ Jared hasn’t tried. From camping out on the Flint River for weeks eating nothing but the fish he caught, to cutting up a rug at the local Moose Lodge, to driving out to Yellowstone in 2015 for his first summer in the park.. Jareds a Montana man in his heart and it shows. He’s been an important role in YR since the beginning. He loves the back country trips but if you're lucky enough to enjoy a day ride with Jared, we can guarantee a good time.
