ESS is still closed for equine-assisted therapies and activities. We began gradually reopening for volunteers and visitors, but will not resume regular schedules or operations until the COVID-19 pandemic is no longer a threat to our health and well-being. If you want to volunteer, please email Marty, our volunteer coordinator, for more information. Visitors must make an appointment to come out.

Bindy was the recipient of the prestigious 2011 Milagro Animal Award presented by Animal Protection of New Mexico. The award was presented October 1, 2011 at a banquet in Santa Fe. Bindy was recognized for his "outstanding intelligence and/or courage."
Santa Fe artist Barbara Meikel sponsored Bindy's award and created a beautiful oil painting of Bindy and Tali, titled "He's My Hero." Animal Protection of NM did a video of Bindy and ESS that was shown at the awards ceremony.
We are very proud of Bindy's accomplishments. He's just a tiny little donkey, but he has a big, big heart and he is an important part of the ESS family as well as our mascot.
