Manna Pro announces the sponsorship of SpiritHorse International Equine Assisted Therapy in support of the organization’s mission to assist individuals with special needs in reaching their full potential through interaction with horses.
“Our mission is ‘Nurturing life for happy, healthy pets’, and I can’t think of a better way to nurture than to give back to those who help the community through horsemanship,” shared Teri Nichols, Equine Brand Manager.
“Our support helps SpiritHorse International in their mission, plus they are so much more because of the research and implementation of therapeutic methods to further develop their riders’ needs. They are a national organization so their reach and implementation impacts so many,” added Nichols.

The company’s products, staples in barns everywhere, range from the flagship brand, Calf-Manna® to the most popular horse treats on the market.

John, who suffered a stroke at age 35, is an example of how SpiritHorse’s therapeutic riding methods, determination, and the love from a horse helps improve lives. Prior to his participation in the SpiritHorse therapeutic riding program, he was partially immobile and unable to speak. John now walks, talks, and drives again. His story is one of the organization’s many successes in nurturing life through horsemanship.
