Great news all you Cavalli Foundation friends and followers! Veronica has got the architect, the engineer and the topographer busy with the plans for the new ranch including meeting with the architect on the ground to see ‘in situ’ what the land is like and starting to design the distribution of the facilities on it.

Apart from that there is always the day to day work to keep the whole team busy. Reina supervises the volunteers and the therapy projects whilst Veronica organizes new yearly programmes. Just because the move to the new ranch is imminent, it doesn’t mean that the Cavalli team can sit back and relax. There are all sorts of activities going on; for example preparing summer activities – Pony Club every Tuesday and Thursday from 9am-1pm

This year Cavalli was contacted by the Spanish Association for Youth Initiative to take part in their Annual Award Winners’ Gala directed, amongst others, at primary, secondary and high school students, whereby Aptitude and Attitude are rewarded in equal parts to recognise the effort and work developed by promising young people.  In the case of Cavalli Foundation, 10 pupils were awarded in the Solidarity category for their efforts during the past 3 years collecting signatures that were presented to the Mayoress of Alhama City Council to stop animal abuse and for organizing 2 Solidarity Fairs to raise funds to build shelters for the animals at the new ranch, fundraising activities designed by the children in which they raised more than €2,000 and for their effort and determination have been awarded. 

We are so proud of Tyler, Matilda, Betsy, Arienne, Laura, Ian, David, Iris, Dario and Violeta.

Tyler Peacock, after 10 years diligently learning about horses and their welfare, is to be the new Cavalli Teacher’s Assistant.  He will be coming every Saturday to help out, supervising the kids when grooming, leading those who need leading and helping with the horses’ feed and other needs. In exchange for working as Veronica’s right-hand man, he will be learning and getting his lessons for free.  Well done Tyler Peacock!
