Our Mission

Caring Cowgirl a (501c3) provides therapeutic mini-equine visits in San Francisco, CA. Serving children with special needs has been our initial focus, but we believe everyone can benefit from calming interactions with empathic animals. Folks stuck at the office who need a break from their screen to kids living in the inner city who may have never met a horse before, anyone can set up a mini-meeting with Shakira and Vanessa!



Shakira is a rescue dwarf mini horse. She has a gentle soul and will steal your heart before you even realize it’s gone.



Vanessa is a rescue mini donkey. She is the perfect combination of lovable and hardworking; she’s even been known to pick up a paint brush and help you refinish your fence!

She has worked professionally with horses since 2013, primarily teaching adaptive horse riding to children with special needs.
