Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

It was with great anticipation that the Festival Nomad and I sat in the boardroom at the Lindsay Agricultural Society Exhibition grounds during their recent event “All About Horses”. Bev Roy, event organizer, had arranged for us to meet and interview none other than The Mantracker! Terry Grant was appearing for both days at the show, to sign autographs and talk. If you are horse lover and a lover of adventure and excitement, you will know The Mantracker! He appears on the television series Mantracker on OLN.

I gave a great deal of consideration to the questions I was going to ask Terry. I wanted my INSIDE SCOOP interview, with The Mantracker, to be different from others. When asked one particular question, even Terry said... “that’s a tough question”! Here is my interview.

I asked the Mantracker if he thought his “talent” was a dying art! He said that “it is a dying art! Through my efforts of the television series, it has just has brought it up to the top of the water”. He does as much educational training and workshops, but, cautioned that, in his words, “I can teach anybody to track, but you have to go into the bush and us it!”
