Lilly is the beginning of something simply amazing! In my younger years I was an avid rider. There was nothing more freeing than being on the back of a horse. Riding from sun up to sun set. Connecting with an animal so large and so strong yet feeling completely free.
Lilly has come home with me. I have not ridden in years and I can not be anymore excited. I have dreamed of owning my own horse again one day, and that day has come true.
This feeling, this freedom and the disappearing of my anxiety and depression when I am with her has sparked the need to share this with others. Horses are so amazing when it comes to picking up on human emotion, calming humans and just showing us how to trust again it is unreal.
When I am finished school becoming a Mental Health and Addictions Counselor, I am going to share this gift with others and run an Equine Therapy program so others can share in the benefits.
This Equine Therapy will also be part of the Youth Program I am spearheading at the moment (More on that to come at a later date)
Cheers for now, if you need me I will be in the barn!
