NHI was proud to support the Medicine Horse Program in Colorado. This inspiring Hope Foal Program rescues Premarin foals and pairs them with low self-esteem, depressed or suicidal young girls to provide a unique opportunity for personal growth and mutual care. Giving these young girls the responsibility of "gentling and handling" foals, who have had a rough start in life and need great amounts of love and kindness, not only allows them to identify but helps provide these teenagers with a mutually beneficial relationship through which to find purpose, love and maturity.
Right is a picture of Essence NHI’s Premarin foal who ended up connecting so deeply with one of the girls in the program her father bought Essence and we donated all those funds to the program.
