May 1, 2021. We are saddened to hear of the passing of Charlie Harrison. He was a special friend of Team Velvet and was well-loved by the staff, horses, the children we serve, and the greater WDVR 89.7 Sergeantsville, NJ / WPNJ 90.5 Easton, PA community which extended across the internet. We will miss him.



In this first episode of the "Women Who Inspire Series," Dr Susan Edwards shares her expertise and experience with this amazing therapy, the fastest-growing modality of therapy in the world today.  As an added bonus, she shares her personal inspirations - inspirations that have guided her personally and professionally. Her inspirations include: favorite writers, mentors, the goodness network, and love.

The podcast is hosted by Claudine Wolk who co-hosts Lets Talk! on WDVR radio 89.7 in Sergeantsville, N.J.

Team Velvet recently took part in a 30-Day Horseshine Challenge.

The horses were given Horseshine, a product from Omega Fields for one month.

"I am amazed at the qualitative difference in our three therapy horse herd in this short time. All three horses show more shine, thickness and improved texture after we followed the recommended feeding guidelines by weight. All of the improved in appearance which is significant as they started out as beautiful horses," said Dr. Susan Edwards.
