Nina Simmonds laughs when she says that she took care of Golden Receiver for years and now the horse is taking care of her. But it is not far from the truth.
And Golden Receiver is taking care of more than Simmonds.
Simmonds, thanks to the money earned by Golden
Receiver during his harness racing career, in late February traveled to Costa Rica as part of the organization Equitarian Initiative. The group unites veterinarians, blacksmiths and caregivers to provide medical
assistance to working horses, mules and donkeys used for income, agriculture and transportation in the developing world. It also provides education and training to the local population.
