The horse therapy site has been an awesome place to help at because I discovered how much I like working with kids as well as with the horses themselves. Since I help a lot with the maintenance aspect of the horses and the ranch, I feel more comfortable now than I did when I first started. Now, I can’t wait to do the same in New Jersey to continue the work I have started. I never knew I would like it so much.
Sicaru is one of the oldest horses there and he is the main horse used for the therapy sessions with the kids. He is very calm and we even got to braid his hair once. Being around Sicaru has helped me feel more comfortable around all of the horses since he’s always calm and easy to work with when walking him with the kids during their sessions. I also got to ride him once!
One interesting horse to work with is called Spirit, the youngest horse. He is the most hyper one and he is adorable. He’s still getting used to wearing the headstall as well as getting used to being pet, but he’s still young and has a long way to go. Hopefully I’ll get to see him all grown up when I come back!
