"Thank you so much for choosing Mr Wise Guy as the face of the Animal Planet R.O.A.R. campaign. I miss this horse every single day. Seeing him puts smiles on all our faces," said Karen Cuneo, Wings and Hooves Therapeutic Riding Founder. "We are voting!!! And will continue to vote every day!"

Who is Mr Wise Guy?
Mr Wise Guy +// (1988-2014) serves as an example that we are not defined by the challenges in our lives but the way we adapt and overcome them.

After a stellar 15-year show career in Arabian competition, at the age of 20, he transitioned into the life of a therapy horse and became the mainstay of the therapeutic riding program at Wings and Hooves Therapeutic Riding in East Kingston, New Hampshire.

He was a champion despite a severe injury as a young horse that resulted in a broken jaw and paralysis in the lower quadrant of his face. Because of this, Mr Wise Guy's tongue frequently hung out of his mouth like an eager puppy dog.

Mr Wise Guy was inducted into the Horse Stars Hall of Fame in 2014. Read more here . .

Mr Wise Guy

There are an estimated 200,000 unwanted horses in the US. Tragically, many are slaughtered. Of the 50 million people with disabilities, only 54,000 are able to benefit from equine assisted activities and therapies.
