Time and again, our rescue horses have demonstrated the profound positive effects working with equines can have on the people who care for them. Our foundation and member horses provide equine-assisted therapy, interact with low-income and at-risk youth, and appear in community events that promote an active and healthy lifestyle.
PFF partners with Milton Hershey School, a private education facility for children from lower incomes families, as well as other groups and organization, to host barn visits several times per year. Instruction in equine care, safety and riding teaches patience, work ethic, discipline and confidence.
In 2014 we instituted the Winnie’s Way Scholarship, named for our very first lesson horse. This scholarship allows a child of low-income background to attend a week long PFF summer or winter camp session in which he or she will learn about horse care, equine safety, and horseback riding. Children ages 9-16 are eligible. DO you know child who would benefit from learning to ride and care for a horse?
