Riding with Hope

We had a wonderful day of riding with HopeKids families today. They were eager to learn how to ride and care for the horses. Van Raf spent the day visiting with the families, he enjoyed keeping the children entertained while they waited for their turn to ride.

Quinn and Flicka were our therapist today, they loved teaching the children grooming techniques. Who doens’t love a good brushing! Their favorite part was encouraging the children to strengthen their balance by bareback riding. Riding Bareback requires focus and self-awareness, seeing the children build their confidence was all the payment they needed. Well maybe a few Treats too!
