Hello everyone, It’s hard to believe that summer has come to an end and we are already back into fall season already. Today on my blog I want to talk about how nice it has been to get back into a routine. Last year 2020 sure made it hard for everyone to have their daily routines but it is sure nice to be able to have some normal back again. I know that for myself that I have been very fortunate that I was able to have some what of a routine last year. For a couple of months it was hard not being able to go back to my favourite place and my happy place which is my riding stable Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association. I really had a hard time not being able to be there while we were first going through covid. It was definitely sad because not only was it hard not being able to ride for a couple of months but it was also heart breaking for the other riders who were not able to be there for a year and a half. Most of those riders were the ones who needed the service and therapeutic horseback riding the most. I know that Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association was struggling not being able to be at full capacity for a while but they were able to open back up to most of the independent riders with no volunteers after being forced to shut down for three months last year.

Now Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association has been able to be back to full capacity for fall session and it sure feels so good to have everyone back. We now also have new people not only for horseback riding but even new volunteers. It sure has been so nice for me to see some of the riders come back that haven’t been there for a year and a half. Being able to volunteer again has been truly made my heart feel full again. I love being able to see smiles, hear laughs and connections again. Honestly there’s nothing quite like it. I still love being able to give back to this incredible organization that has done so much for me and I also love being able to see the young kids who need the therapeutic horseback riding the most improve, that’s what makes my heart so happy. I cannot say enough great things about this amazing place. I will always do whatever I can to help them out because if it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be where I am today. Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association has made me become a strong, confident, compassionate, patient, loyal and independent human being. The horses are definitely a big part of the organization but they certainly can’t don’t it without the incredible staff and I can’t forget about all of the other amazing volunteers that come out to help.

Well that’s all I really wanted to share today for this post. I really hope that you enjoyed reading this post. It truly means a lot to me for you taking the time out of your day to come read my blog posts. I hope that you all have a great day and a wonderful weekend! Here’s a few pictures that I have taken at Valley Therapeutic Equestrian in the last month I hope you enjoy!
