equine nutrition and daily care, Perry-Glass noted, "From
what I've seen the condition of the animals [in Brooke's
programs] have been far better than I ever expected!"
she said . "I feel like Brooke USA and ESAP have really
made a difference for these animals . They're very
interactive, friendly and well taken care of ."
ESAP owes the success of their programs mostly to the
fact that they utilize sustainable methods that they teach
equine owners so that they can continue to provide
adequate care once the program is no longer active . The
work that Brooke implements has an intense ripple effect
for both working equines and their families who depend
on them due to their significant emphasis on education .
Brooke USA's first ambassador, Brock, commented
that the educational method is definitely a defining
factor for their immense success . "It's not a system of
free handouts - Brooke educates the villagers, and the
women especially, how to handle their animals in a way
that's going to help them last and be useful as long as
"The biggest thing I would take away from this trip is
a better understanding of how absolutely vital these
animals are to the communities' well-being and the
people's daily lives . When you see it first-hand you
realize how the animals are so unbelievably important to
them . This experience has been inspiring, and now I'm
even more convinced that what Brooke USA is funding is
pivotal to the success of these programs and well-being
of the animals," Brock concluded .
