Equine Therapy in Child-Size Doses

Us horse owners are so lucky. We get to soak up good equine vibes daily. And we get to share. This summer, I had the privilege of introducing a young friend to trail riding. Gracie, a four-year old suburbanite, took to it quickly. She had an easiness and natural ability that synched well with her charge, Peppermint.
Pep, in turn, seemed mindful of her rider’s beginner status and pulled no pranks while I rode Shea and ponied her those afternoons.
Summer faded to late fall and those rides became mini memories until I received an envelope and card from Miss Gracie in Virginia. (see photo below)
What’s even better?
Her granddad told me she dressed up as a cowgirl for Halloween.
