THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF EQUINE SPORTS PRESERVATION PARTNERS WITH WILD FOR LIFE FOUNDATION TO PROMOTE EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING PROGRAMS FOR MILITARY VETERANS AND DISADVANTAGED YOUTH
Los Angeles, CA- The Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) is pleased to announce its recent partnership with the American Association of Equine Sports Preservation (AAESP) in a combined effort to promote horse preservation, along with equine-assisted programs that help children with autism, military veterans, and other victims of post-traumatic stress disorder.
"We are thrilled to partner with the AAESP, whose support has been unwavering for our lifesaving work on behalf of America's horses," said Katia Louise, Founder, President and Volunteer Executive Director, WFLF. "We hope this partnership will continue into the future by helping to embrace the healing hearts of horses as we strive to create a better world for horses and people for generations to come."
The AAESP most recently announced its support for the WFLF's expansion of its equine assisted learningSaving America's Horses initiative, with a focus on its community enrichment equine wellness activities and robust equine-therapy programs for disadvantaged youth, active duty military and veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). To help champion the way, the AAESP has just become a lead sponsor for WFLF's upcoming Spring Benefit Reception which will take place in beautiful Rancho Santa Fe, CA on March 29th.
"The WFLF is grateful for the AAESP's sponsorship of the WFLF's Saving America's Horses booth at the 15th Annual EAGALA conference which took place in Mesquite, TX just last week," added Ms. Louise. "The WFLF booth at the conference was visited by numerous conference attendees who were able to engage and learn from our compelling multimedia educational materials."
"There are not enough horses in the world to heal hurting humans," said Allison Booth, President and Founder, AAESP. Mrs. Booth was saved by horses as a young girl, and now she is saving them. Booth's mission is to "make the world a better place for horses and their habitats - and for humans who can be helped by horses." As a crusader for many causes, Booth has demonstrated a strong will and fierce determination to help the creatures that have been her constant companions: horses. Booth herself has been influenced by horses and their mystical ability to change people's lives.
