As clients enter the Special Equestrians barn or engage in unmounted therapy work, they are greeted by Suzie, a 24-year-old shetland mare. Suzie is the organization's smallest pony, and while she is no longer able to do mounted work, she still engages in unmounted therapy and has become an ambassador for the organization. While Special Equestrians endeavors to keep lesson and events costs down for its clients, the organization struggles to cover the costs of hay, grain, and general horse care. As Suzie ages, her health problems and increasing medical expenses make caring for her financially difficult. Special Equestrians is in need of additional funding to continue to keep Suzie healthy with food, dental care, and health supplements.
