EquiSeq and Haw Creek Animal Hospital Raise $10,000 for Wilderwood Equine Therapy and Rescue


Peralta, New Mexico

Paul Szauter, EquiSeq’s Chief Scientific Officer, attended an event at Wilderwood Equine Therapy and Rescue on October 30, to present Wilderwood with a donation from EquiSeq toward their equine therapy program.

EquiSeq and Haw Creek Animal Hospital staged a joint fundraiser that raised $10,000 for Wilderwood.

Wilderwood’s equine-assisted programs are an innovative and integrative approach designed for autistic adults and children (aged 8 and up) to strengthen authentic self-perception, self-possibility, and self-realization through mind/body interoceptive and somatic understanding combined with the philosophy of Hautism, which embraces and celebrates the innate connection between horses and autistic people.

Wilderwood also rescues unwanted horses, provides them a lifetime loving home, and educates the community about horses and autism.

Wilderwood adopted Lady Faith from EquiSeq. Lady Faith is n/K1 and free of other variants. She is the mare in which the K1 allele of COL6A3 was discovered by whole-genome sequencing.
