Being a life-long animal lover, Cynthia observed her own horse trying to scratch under his chin by precariously standing on 3 legs, and she knew there had to be a better way. Utilizing her passion for animals, in 2007 she developed a prototype and launched ScratchnAll. She recently launched a second product that aids physically challenged individuals and veterans suffering from PTSD in promoting independence and building courage and confidence when connecting with the horse. Currently ScratchnAll and Scratch Me Silly are enriching the lives of barnyard, domestic and zoo animals.
