My son David has been taking riding lessons at a special place called Saddle Up. They do theraputic riding for kids and people with various disabilities and challenges. David just completed his second 10-week class cycle and participated in the horse show. He won second place in his class in the show.
The day after the show, Heidi (a Norwegian Fjord like David's horse Bjorg) gave birth to her little Danika. David was able to go over and meet the new baby when it wasn't even yet an hour old. It was a very special time for David to get to see a new baby horse like that. David was even able to go in and help wash Heidi's "milker" so the new baby would be able to eat.
This has been such a wonderful experience for David and for all of us. Everyone at Saddle Up is so special and wonderful. The minute I start getting down about all the troubles and problems in this old world I think of Saddle Up and the extraordinary people who come there to work with and help others and immediately my spirits are lifted. There are some really really wonderful people in this world and we have been so blessed to have them in our lives.
Thank you so much, Saddle Up!
