The society chose to ride horses for the expedition because of what the animal symbolizes. “The horse is a symbol of strength, compassion, understanding, and commitment and this is what these kids need,” Brooke said.
It’s also more unique than the usual awareness campaigns. “You have your walks, your bicycle rides, your runners [but] you don’t hear [of] too many horse expeditions.
“We need the grassroots Canadian’s to support us and that’s what we are banking on,” Brooke said.”
