I am nominating Devon because he could really benefit from this award. Until June of 2022, Devon was an active member of our team, teaching at-risk youth how to ride. Then he contracted EPM, a neurologic disease that horses get from eating infected opossum feces. Devon came up from the field and took a few steps forward, and then spun in a circle.
We immediately called the Vet and he presented all of the symptoms of EPM, including, incoordination, stilted movement, and an abnormal gait. We immediately begun expensive medication, and now he is doing much better. The disease took a lot out of him, he lost a lot of weight and has some muscle atrophy. Now he needs time to recover. He could really use your wonderful supplements to help aid in his recovery, and the money attached to this award would go directly towards his medical bills.

In the words of one of our participants:

I came, maybe 2 years ago to Brook Hill suffering with anxiety, having panic attack causing me to have trouble with just about everything. They partnered me with Devon, and I am no longer scared and alone. He makes me feel better and helps me make friends with the other riders. Now it is my turn to help him!
