“Nurturing Community is core in all three Manna Pro partnerships. Whether it’s through supporting the healing power of horses with SpiritHorse International equine assisted therapy programs, providing 4-H youth resources to drive and succeed in life, or assisting in keeping animals off The Livestock Conservancy Conservation Priority list, we’re honored to to share our partnerships with organizations who care about nurturing others and the community as much as we do.” shared Elizabeth Frichtl, Associate Brand Manager, Homestead & Equine, Compana Pet Brands.

“As one who has committed more than 30 years to working with people with Special Needs, I know firsthand that working together, we can do anything. I have heard hundreds of children speak their first words, some as late as their late teens. I have seen hundreds of people walk when doctors said they never would,” shared Ric Lehman, Executive Director, SpritHorse International. “Miracle after miracle, because a group of people came together in SpiritHorse, in a common cause improving other’s lives. I’ve witnessed the power that can result from working together and the exponential benefits to the entire community as a direct result of those efforts. So we dedicate ourselves to bringing people together in a common cause. That’s what I call Nurturing Community.”
