In addition to the information about Shadow, he is kind and takes care of each of his riders with such love. Before becoming a therapeutic horse Shadow was a hunter/jumper. He found that being a therapeutic horse was his calling. As he is now getting older we would love to be able to continue improve his health with the amazing supplements you offer. We want him to continue to provide the amazing care he gives to our riders and athletes. Being a charity it is wonderful to get the opportunity to improve the supplements we provide to our horses.
