I have to share new rider Cliff's story. He called to volunteer in Mesa as he had horses years ago and wanted to help. Due to a stroke last year he was challenged with some deficiencies. Cliff got out of his truck and as he walked to us, we noticed he was dragging one of his feet. His balance was not very good. He helped clean one of the pens and was exhausted. We had a break in riders, so had him mount Lulu. He rode for - maybe - 15 minutes. When he dismounted - to all our amazement - he WALKED. No dragging his foot. He came back the next week and was still walking well. He was able to help groom his new girlfriend - Lulu, and he walked all around our arena. Stamina was way improved. We were able to get him up again and afterwards he took longer steps as he walked in more balance and control than before. Even his speech was more organized. This therapeutic riding stuff is very very powerful.
The Southern Sassenachs, an "Outlander" fan club has started an "outlander" T-Shirt Raffle fundraiser for us this winter.
In case you don't know, "Outlander" is a book series written by Diana Gabaldon. She supported Calico, and now Freckles, for many years. "Outlander" was made into a TV series on STARS and is now in it's 3rd season. So check out the raffle - only $10 for a ticket.
The T-Shirt is signed by Diana as well as most of the cast. Pretty cool stuff. The link is -
