People are often surprised when they first see Panda guiding her owner, Ann Edie through her New York town. Panda is a miniature horse, and she knows how to help Ann go anywhere she wants to go. As a guide horse, it is Panda's job to see for Ann, guiding her across busy streets, through crowded buildings, and even into cars or onto trains. Panda is one of the first miniature horses to be trained as a guide animal, and she takes her responsibility to Ann very seriously. Ann and Panda use special signals to tell each other when to stop, when to go, or where there might be danger. Together they can tackle almost any situation with confidence.
