Horsin’ Around

We officially kicked off our summer team schedule with a group of energetic adults representing GlobalX from Atlanta, GA. The team came down eager to serve and share their skills and hearts with our equestrian program.

Our equestrian program provides a safe place for the children to relieve stress and pent-up emotions by learning riding skills and the responsibility of caring for animals. The children receive weekly lessons, and many find that riding is very therapeutic.

This team helped to cover the concrete stall walls with wood to help protect the horses when they kick the walls. It also added such a nice touch to the visual effects of the barn. They also were able to rebuild a mounting block that disparately needed replacing.

They ended their week by playing games with the children on horse back, participating in sack races and egg relay races. Smiles and laughs were abundant. It was a great way to end the week for everyone!
