“Rescue Horse’s True Story Brings Encouraging Message of Hope For Kids and Teens”

Virginia Beach, VA –July 22, 2020 — Pongo is a horse with a ministry helping children, teens and adults who have faced rejection, bullying and abuse.

Pongo The Rescue Horse is written by Annamarie Strawhand and tells the story of an abandoned horse named Pongo and a lonely girl named Leigh who essentially rescued each other.

Based on the true story of Annamarie’s daughter Landry and her real-life relationship with her horse Pongo, the book showcases their amazing journey of hope, future and purpose.

With Pongo’s new free book program, children, teens and adults who have suffered from the effects of bullying, abuse and rejection are able to request a free copy at pongotherescuehorse.com/free-book-program/.

The purpose of the book is to help people understand that they are loved and valued and that God not only sees them but also hears and answers prayers. Pongo’s Facebook and Instagram platforms provide a way for readers to continue following Pongo’s story while receiving inspiration and encouragement.

A rejected horse destined for the slaughter house became an answer to prayer for a young girl needing to heal and rebuild confidence after being bullied in school.

One reader, Lisa Myers, said she would love to see the book become a series one day.

“It reminds me of the Little House on the Prairie books,” she said. “You just want to cozy up with a blanket, some hot chocolate, and read all about this rescue horse Pongo and his faithful family.”

By sharing Pongo’s story, Annamarie hopes to inspire others to put their faith in God and rise above the painful effects of bullying. At the end of the book, she provides faith-based principles for receiving answers to your prayers and step-by-step tips for those dealing with bullying.

Her goal is to get Pongo’s life-changing story in the hands of as many children, teens and adults as possible in hopes that they would overcome loneliness, rejection and depression.

“Who is the next teen Pongo is going to help?” she asks.

With Pongo’s new free book program, she hopes it will be not one but many.
