 Events to add Purpose for Animals and People

Steve teaching a grandchild about horses, nature…


I cannot thank you enough for the sacrifice of your time and money to make an impact on our [Camp Rockhurst] campers. They loved it!!!! We all did. Your entire team (humans and animals) were amazing and the day was magical!!! What a blessing it was indeed.

Principles and Practices


  • Animal sanctuary
  • Work and play with people to have purpose
  • Advocate adoption and no-kill shelters except for mercy euthanasia
  • Support honored tradition and meaning of riderless horses for Veterans Day
  • Practice Love ’em and Lead ’em Leadership


  • People seeking to Master Goliaths can plan, renew, and begin action
  • Veterans Making Comebacks can heal faster connecting to animals
  • People with physical or moral injury can recover with personal leadership better
  • Students learning about and working with animals develop fitness, responsibility, education, courage, and instinctive leadership that also helps them with people
  • People often treat other people and animals about the same when no one is looking so teaching higher levels of animal rights also helps human behavior and relationships.
