RARITAN TWP., N.J. — Team Velvet got a visit from PBS 39’s Erica Andrews the day after Christmas.

Andrews, who covers Hunterdon County, did a feature story on the program that uses horses as part of therapy for children who have suffered from trauma.

One of the team’s horses is Little Annie who starred in Little Horse Big Medicine, which won a Winnie Award at the 2018 Equus Film Festival held in Brooklyn, N.Y. from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2. The story is told from Annie’s point of view as she is the film’s narrator.

Team Velvet Inc. Board Member Kathy and daughters Christina and Natalie and volunteer Andrea Hansen.
