East End: Spirit's Promise Equine Rescue
Spirit's Promise Equine Rescue is bringing the farm to people virtually.
Marisa Striano founded Spirit's Promise, an equine rescue ranch, 10 years ago.
Among other things, the nonprofit organization allows students, Scouts, grieving groups and others to tour its ranch. But like for everyone else, life changed with the COVID-19 pandemic.
"As this COVID started, we said we just still have to educate. We still have to bring this knowledge to the masses and we all came up with the wonderful idea of doing a Zoom," says Striano.
Spirit's Promise is located in Riverhead.
