!Saving Aisha!

 Why Aisha?

We've been asked lately: "Why are we trying so hard to save this horse?"

Answer: Not for our own benefit, but that of many others. She has been placed in our hands for a reason. If we don't treat her special medical needs, she will be in pain and become difficult to work with. God hasn't sent someone else to take over responsibility for her, so the plan is not to give up. We don't give up on the people who come to us for help and we won't give up on the horses who help them. She means a great deal to many clients and riders that come to Perfect Ponies Learning Center.


Please click the link below to help save Aisha. She is in need of some specialist veterinary attention.  This horse has the personality of a puppy for all her size and magnificence she is a, gentle, kind, playful and patient giant.  She helps people from all walks of life to grow, learn and be at peace.  From our countries heroes to children with special needs she is adored by all. Visit the link below for more information.
