Mission: Educating Children about Miniature Ponies and Horses

At the heart of Pony 4 Precious’ mission is the goal of educating children about miniature ponies and horses. Through its engaging website, the organization offers a wide range of educational resources, including videos, information, pictures, training programs, games, and kid-friendly educational pieces. These resources cater to children of all ages and backgrounds, allowing them to learn about the equine lifestyle in a fun and interactive way. As someone who used to work in the city, Mike Eastwood understands the importance of introducing children to the wonders of the equine world. He has witnessed firsthand how Winston, the miniature pony, has brought joy and fun into the lives of many families. Pony 4 Precious strives to create a sense of ownership among children by offering them the opportunity to adopt a share of a pony, providing them with a unique connection and a source of pride.

Miniature Ponies: A Learning Opportunity for Kids in the City

If you ask any child if they want a pony, the answer is likely to be a resounding “Yes.” Miniature ponies, with their cute and compact size, capture the imaginations of children everywhere. But for kids living in the city, where can they go to learn about these fascinating animals? That’s where Pony 4 Precious comes in. With the potential of cartoons, books, toy companies, and YouTube videos, Winston, the beloved miniature pony, can become a household name, thanks to the efforts of Michael Eastwood and his five children’s books,  available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Children all over the country are reading and learning from Cowboy Mike and Winston. 100% of all book proceeds are donated to Pony 4 Precious charity.

But Michael Eastwood’s generosity doesn’t stop there. Pony 4 Precious also donates these books to children in foster programs, events, and hospitals, spreading joy and knowledge to those who need it the most. The heartwarming stories of Cowboy Mike and Winston not only captivate young readers, but also instill important values such as courage, hard work, and keeping promises, as reflected in Cowboy Ethics.

Goals of Pony 4 Precious

At Pony 4 Precious, the mission goes beyond just selling books. The charity has set ambitious goals to make a meaningful impact in the lives of children. One of the key objectives is to provide yearly scholarships to children who aspire to further their education after high school. Pony 4 Precious aims to collaborate with schools to develop educational programs that ignite children’s passion for learning, regardless of their geographical location.

Living in a city shouldn’t prevent children from learning valuable lessons that animals can teach us.
