Yesterday Benni and I visited GAIT, a therapeutic riding organization based in Milford, PA. It was a nice opportunity for Benni to interact with children and their families - as well as to meet the special horses involved in the program.
One young girl was reluctant to pet Benni. She sat down and first touched him with a finger. He leaned against her and sat on her shoes. She then petted him. When she was done she said, "Benni told me not to be afraid."
It's moments like this that I see so clearly the value in what I am doing.
To learn more about GAIT, and to cast your vote in a contest that will allow the nonprofit to add a new horse to its program, visit the organization's Facebook page.
