Ofelina is from Costa Rica

Ofelina has one horse called Estrella (Star) who is an essential part of her daily life.

Ofelina has one horse called Estrella (Star) who is an essential part of her daily life.

Estrella (Star) helps Ofelina take her four children to school, get herself to work, and to travel into town to buy food and clothes. 

How has our project helped? 

Whilst Ofelina has always been emotionally attached to her horse and has done her very best to look after Estrella, she has never before had a hoof pick.

Our project provided her with a Care Pack containing the simple tools she needs to provide Estrella with essential daily care. By teaching her how to use her new hoof pick, Ofelina is now reducing the chance of Estrella becoming lame.  

Ofelina values her horse enormously, understanding that she could not provide the quality of life she does for her children – including their education – without Estrella.  

She embraced the simple tools she was given that supported her efforts to keep Estrella in good health.
