This summer, Jack & Millie Andersen from Vernon, B.C. spent a lot of time organizing and transporting donations for the Jaltemba Equine Education Project (J.E.E.P.). Jack commented, “All the people I contacted at riding stables, tack shops and individual horse owners here in the Vernon and Alberta area, even when they did not have things to donate, were really cooperative and helpful. The generosity they demonstrated was truly great.”

The J.E.E.P. team and horses want to sincerely thank the generous people and companies who made donations…
