Everything about this pony is amazing! He also visits local nursing homes and schools to help educate people on the benefits of the human/animal bond. Petie has received national recognition, including a segment on Animal Planet (Miracle Pets), People magazine (September 27, 2004), National Geographic for Kids (May 2005), Reader's Digest (January 2007), Time for Kids (April 2006) and numerous newspaper articles. But the fame has never gone to his head...he has remained a quiet hero.
Petie has allowed Victory Gallop to reach out to many children who, because of their medical situations, would not be able to participate in our program. No matter how many visits he makes, each one is unique as people do double takes, ask if him if he is real and wonder what a horse is doing in the hospital. However, it only takes a moment to watch him interact with a child to understand that his gift is truly something special.
