Inner City Slickers was founded in the early 1990s by Michael McMeel, drummer with the popular 1970s band Three Dog Night. Its mission is to introduce at-risk children and teens to horses and what the group calls cowboy ethics. "We give youngsters a new perspective on their ability to succeed in life regardless of the family dynamic they come from," says Cindy Corwin, ICS executive director. Headquartered in New Tazewell, Tennessee, ICS has multiple locations nationwide, including California, Florida, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, and Tennessee, with another coming soon in Missouri.
