Skipper’s Profile:Guardian Angel
With deep sadness we announce that our beloved Skipper is now our Guardian Angel. Skipper was a 17 year old quarter horse whose playful and mischievous personality won the hearts of many. He was known for pushing the boundaries to help heal the wounded and wouldn’t let anyone get away with anything. Skipper helped many veterans and first responders find their way to healing. He gave all his heart to each of his veterans and first responders repeatedly. He now waits in heaven’s green pastures to carry those who are wounded through the gates of peace. Thank you Skipper for making this world a better place for all of us; thank you for being a part of our family! We will miss you dearly and love you forever!

Bella Luna’s Profile:
Devgru, a Canter Arizona owned thoroughbred has recovered from his knee surgery sufficiently to go on long rides in the desert with his Canter trainer, Vicki Dryer. Vicki is a Gold Star mom, having lost her son Corey a little over two years ago in Afghanistan. Through her love of horses and her connections in the veteran community Vicki has arranged for Canter Arizona to team with Horse Rhythm Foundation (HRF) in an effort to get Vicki and Devgru certified to work with returning vets and first responders. Horse Rhythm founder Sahika Riley has met with Canter Arizona founder Dennis Miller and have discussed the logistics of this partnership. Also assisting with veteran communications is Colonel Bill Sahno, USMC, Retired, a decorated war vet and member of the Arizona Veteran Hall of Fame.
We are excited to have Devgru and Vicki in their new career working in the Equine Assisted Psychotherapy field with HRF. Stay tuned for more updates regarding Devgru and his progress with our veterans and first responder.
