The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me! This is my journey of returning to the wonderful world of horses. I’ve taken about five years of hiatus from a lifetime of equestrian sport. This hiatus was due to the progression of multiple sclerosis. I found a therapeutic riding program and one of the riders in the program convinced me that this was something I had to do. I had convinced myself that if I couldn’t ride like I used to, I didn’t want to do it at all. Even though this decision meant alienating myself from the animals and culture I loved. I started riding with the Sprout Therapeutic Riding and Education Center four weeks ago and I can’t believe I denied myself this sport and these incredible animals for so long. This is my story.
