HorseSense Episode 4 - Rescuing Gili Island Ponies - Dr. Kirsten Jackson, WA Vet talks about her mission to help these hardworking ponies

Dr. Kirsten Jackson from Western Australian doesn't see herself as anyone special but she is. Kirsten is one of a team of people working to improve the conditions for the ponies of the Gili Islands in Indonesia. There are no vehicles on the islands so these small, tough ponies are the mode of transport and literally the horsepower of the economy. The conditions are tough with poor quality gear, feed and water. Kirsten and the team work with the owners treating, providing equipment and educating. Their work is changing the lives of these horses in amazing ways. It's both a difficult and heartwarming story. Have a listen, then get on board and help if you can. You can help by any of the following means:
