I had reservations about applying to participate in Riding Beyond. I felt by having been diagnosed with breast cancer followed by chemo and recovery, I had lost much of my independence, and asked myself, “What could a horse do to change things?”. Fortunately, having been accepted into the program, I discovered meeting a horse could be very liberating! I had felt isolated by the cancer experience, but meeting and working with Mystic and Trish, and the fantastic volunteers changed my perspective greatly! Meeting with these wonderful ladies, horse included(!), has enabled me to reach out, open up to, and embrace a new beginning.
A huge thank you to Trish, Mystic and the wonderful volunteers for a life-changing experience! It has led to a greater appreciation of small “miracles”!
