Women's Wellness Event at the Long Beach VA

EET had the sincere honor of being asked to participate in the Long Beach VA’s “Women’s Wellness” event this past Saturday. The ‘Self Care’ movement is a vitally important one, with the recognition that dedicating time to things that enrich our minds and bring us peace and joy is just as important as doing things that sustain our finances or physical health… and that is what this day was all about. The VA graciously allowed us to bring a few of our horses INTO the VA facility for the veterans and employees to interact with (and it was the first time horses had ever stepped foot in this VA). The response was overwhelming, and we now have dozens of veterans who have signed up to participate in EET programs. We are so grateful to the LB VA for allowing us to participate in this event, and be of service to the veterans who sacrificed so much for us.

We also want to give a massive THANK YOU to the LA Sheriff’s Mounted Posse for having 3 of their volunteers there with their horses to assist us in this event. It was wonderful having them there by our side.
