I donated a wonderful, dependable, sweet, and well trained (I blush) Haflinger gelding, Mike, to Equi-Ed. I was so impresssed with Maxine and the volunteers and students that I felt my little horse could do big things for the program. I'm committed to staying in Mike's (the horse's) life, helping provide driving hours for interested volunteers and helping develop a driving program for Equi-Ed. I've also donated funds because I know first-hand how much horse care costs, and I belive strongly that horses have a unique capacity to teach life lessons and to heal.
