"The VA reports improvements physiologically, cognitively and psychologically. So much can be accomplished using equine support, I'm convinced of its value. The focus on illness, wounds, pain, etc. get diverted onto something more "healing." Soldiers with PTSD have huge trust issues which is why it is so difficult to get them to attend therapeutic groups. There is no psychological threat in equine therapy, thus facilitating trust. We are embarking on a valued path to help veterans and others self-improve. The operative word here is self-improve."

-Teaching Literacy/Friendship/Character Building in a fun way


A $350 donation provides a Peter the Peteeatrick Panda’s™ Kids Party for at least 10 children facing adversity.

The children (ages 4-12) learn about health and hospitals, nurses and doctors, trust, friendship and life’s experiences in a friendly and fun way. Children experience age appropriate sing-a-longs, games, participation with the Peter the Peteeatrick Panda™ character, and a nurse to answer questions. Children are provided their very own book, bear, and puppet.

They will also meet Marc O’Brien, the author of “Peter The Peteeatrick Panda’s™ Playground.”
