Brooke and Brooke USA currently work in eleven countries across the globe to aid with equines of all sorts. Horses, mules and donkeys are some of the hardest laborers in the world, and do their work without “complaint”, which means their suffering often goes unheard. A large portion of the world still relies on real horse power for their livelihood. Whether it be to pull their goods through the street, provide transportation or plowing the fields, these equines loyally serve their owners the best they can, sometimes in the worst conditions. In many developing countries, owners do not have the means to provide their equine partners with the food, shelter and medical care they need – especially when they cannot afford it for the members of their own families. Others are simply not aware of their equine’s needs. Through donations and partnerships, Brooke provides education to the communities, and sponsors projects focused on improving the lives of equines and their human families. Through their Buy a Donkey a Drink campaign in 2016, Brooke raised enough in donations to build five water troughs to provide over 13, 500 equines with water. Please consider making a donation to Brooke USA- any amount helps!
Cavallo Hoof Boots
Cavallo Horse boots Patrick with comfort and safety on his therapy trips. In facilities that have slick floor, his Cute Little Boots (CLB) ensure that he won't fall when walking into patients' rooms. They are also excellent for walking on hard surfaces like concerete, can be fitted with studs, and helped to treat hoof issues!
Hylofit is the leading company in wearble equine technology. The system is easily attached to the girth of the horse and on a chest strap for the rider. The sensors track heartrate and send the information via bluetooth to the Hylofit app, where it can help you optimize training and differentiate between regular stresses and pain. As Patrick is older, we are always looking for new ways to keep him healthy and safe and are so proud to use Hylofit to do so. This new technology is groundbreaking in understanding our equine partners and watching out for their best interests.
