MIND BODY AND SOUL HORSE RIDING is the BEST MEDICINE – TORONTO SONG PROJECT Presents SHAWN, EP 4

September 4, 2019


>>STEVE: Shawn was telling us about his childhood
and how everything changed when his mom committed suicide. He was only 16 when that happened. Much later he got a horse and that changed
everything. [Music]>>SHAWN: I’ve always wanted a horse. On a whim, in 2012, so 6 years ago, I bought
a horse. It was a total impulse purchase. He’s come to be a source of sanity for me. Because I find out that I too suffer from
depression, I’m not on meds but he just makes me happy and my doctor says he’s good for
your mind body and soul. It’s a tremendous amount of exercise to ride
a horse. It’s a work out! He’s just a cool little guy.>>STEVE: And with that we are off to the
stables.>>SHAWN: Oh my God I love this song! [sings]
I was such a fool.>>STEVE: it’s actually a good opportunity
to get a sample of the kind of songs that Shawn likes to sing.>>SHAWN: [sings] [Music]>>STEVE: And that’s it we are done for the day. Now I still need to talk to Sean a little
bit more before I tackle this song. He shared a lot about his childhood and his
mom, but I’m going to need to know a little bit more about where he’s at right now. So that’s what we’re going to do next. Oh and guess what? Tamara has never ridden a horse. So we’re doing that too. you know what? It’s been a good day. Except maybe for when Filo did this to my
GoPro. Not cool Filo. [music] Hey, thanks for watching. You’ve heard Shawn’s story. What’s yours about? Did you have to overcome something difficult
or tragic? What do you do for your Mind Body and Soul? Let us know in the comments section below. Shawn and I read all your comments we’ll
be happy to respond. Be sure to hit subscribe because his song
is coming up real soon.
