I am the founder and chair of the non-profit "Happy Hooves". We are an organization that provides horse and donkey therapy to those in need. From Alzheimer's and dementia, to stroke patients, to children with autism and special needs, as well as those suffering from depression and PTSD. Having grown up on a dairy farm in Minnesota, (relocating to Arizona in 1999)I have always had a passion for animals. I have shown many cattle throughout my young life and have a passion to give back to the community. This organization allows me to do just that. Most all of our animals are rescued, and the most recent two have come from a kill pen from Texas. Sharing this experience with others, teaching them the gift of healing from horses and donkeys, is truly something I love!

Fantastic experience. We learned a lot about different animals. We thoroughly enjoyed the various animals on site. The property was well kept, larger than expected and manageable for the location. The animals seem to love their environment and are well taken care of! Jesse was patient, energetic and truly enjoys what he does to share his knowledge and love for animals. He even provides a parting gift. We will be back. TY so much for this unique experience - it was well worth the price!!!

What a perfect start to my day! I have been so excited to come to Jesse’s farm since I booked. I was looking forward to it all week & he, along with the animals, did not disappoint! I felt right at home at the farm & loved getting to know Jesse, the animals & others attending. I will ABSOLUTELY be back! I just moved to AZ & feeling “at home” had been tough, but today couldn’t have been more perfect. You can see and feel his passion for the animals & what he does. They are so loved & it shows! 10/10 recommend! :)

This was not an just an experience it was spiritual. If you are a true animal human, you understand what I mean. Jesse himself is a caring loving person that has found his calling and is a blessing to these animals. Now the animals...they are so unique and different. This is a tremendous accomplishment for rescued animals. They are "home" and comfortable to be such characters. Many times you will go to see animals that are void of personality, this is NOT the case with Jesse's horses, cows, alpaca, goat, dogs and my favorite donkeys! I even signed up to volunteer to help weekly at his rescue and I live in CALIFORNIA! Trust me...I travel everywhere and I found a little piece of farm heaven during this visit. Thank you Jesse for seeing this vision and creating such a sanctuary for these kind animals. you are an angel and I was blessed to spend the morning with you.

This was beautiful! My 12 year old loved it but my toddler did not, however Jesse was very accommodating, understanding and helpful with us in regards to our little one. I look forward to doing this again. Jesse was such a wonderful host and taught us so much about all the animals he’s rescued and the amazing work he does. I am very glad we booked this experience and look forward to the next time we are visiting Arizona to do it again!
