Board of Directors


Founder/Executive Director

Dana Cooke has been an elementary public school teacher since 2000.  She had a lifelong dream of owning her own horse, and that dream finally came true when Hank came into her life in May of 2018.  With her teaching experience and Hank by her side, she wants to share the healing power horses can give back to kids and adults with life challenges.
