After serving in the Army for eight years, Featherstone remained determined to realize his childhood dream of becoming a cowboy.

When he returned to Los Angeles, he learned to ride at stables known as "The Hill" in Compton. Riders there would hop on their saddles and take their horses into the city streets.

In 2012, a fire burned down The Hill. What had become a refuge for youth was suddenly gone.

Sensing a void after the fire, Featherstone opened his own stables in the nearby city of South Gate. He founded Urban Saddles in 2019 to create a space where he could teach kids like Humphreys to care for and ride horses.
