What you'll do

We want to share the unconditional love of all our 4-legged friends! They provide us with so much happiness and joy and we love sharing them with the world!

Guests will learn about the background story of all the different adorable animals and their unique personalities! You will also learn some of the interesting facts about miniature horses and donkeys, alpacas, cows, our sheep and hinny, their required care, as well as playing some trivia throughout the hour, learning some fun facts as we go! (I used to be a school teacher, still love to teach as well as learn! ;-)

Discussing the benefits of equine (horse/donkey) therapy will also be a topic of our experience, while sharing some stories of how our therapy program (Happy Hooves) benefits others in the community.

Other things to note:
Viewing is best from a tablet or computer. Internet speeds will vary. The experience will be best viewed from a high speed internet connection.

Thank you!

I am the founder and chair of the non-profit "Happy Hooves". We are an organization that provides horse and donkey therapy to those in need. From Alzheimer's and dementia, to stroke patients, to children with autism and special needs, as well as those suffering from depression and PTSD.

Having grown up on a dairy farm in Minnesota, (relocating to Arizona in 1999)I have always had a passion for animals and in my years growing up on the farm, I had the joy of showing many cattle throughout my young life. My other passion is to give back to the community. This organization, Happy Hooves, allows me to do just that. Most all of our animals are rescued, & the most recent two have come from a kill pen from Texas. Sharing this experience with others, teaching them the gift of healing from horses and donkeys, is truly something I love to share!

Fantastic visit to Jesse's mini farm! We booked this to introduce some adventure from home for our kids during the pandemic, but we grownups enjoyed it just as much as they did. Our kids are grade 2 and grade 4 and both loved the personalized introductions to the animals and the tour of the farm. Lots of opportunity to ask questions and lots of interactivity. Really was the next best thing to being there in person. Thank you Jesse!

Jesse's sanctuary and rescue work is so heartwarming. I brought a group of students to virtually visit him and his animals, and we had a great time! It was like the horses, donkeys, alpacas, and others knew we were there for them! They loved the camera (or maybe they just really love Jesse). I'm so grateful people like him exist in the world! Thanks for saving so many lives.

I had the enjoyable opportunity to participate in Jesse Pekarek's virtual Airbnb experience "Embracing Unconditional Love of Animals" through his non-profit organization, Happy Hooves. Jesse gave an engaging and entertaining tour of his Phoenix, Arizona rescue farm and introduced us to his eclectic farm family, including his mini horses and donkeys, alpacas and more. It was a joy to witness the love and compassion he has for his animals and to learn their stories, their use as therapy animals, and fun facts about these unique animals. I would highly recommend this feel-good and educational virtual Airbnb experience with Jesse Pekarek through his non-profit organization, Happy Hooves.
