Vanessa is one of our adult volunteers and here's what she has to say about her THS journey!
My name is Vanessa and I am 53 years old. I started coming to THS when my niece took riding lessons, and that's when I met all the teachers, the owners and the horses. I saw what a positive and happy place it is and immediately noticed how I loved being there and didn't want to leave! It became "my happy place." Now, for the past two years, I've been taking riding lessons and volunteering in classes helping kids ride and learn all about horses. I love it! I have learned so much and enjoy every minute of my time there. I think it is the best place I have ever found to ride as they teach us all about horses and what it takes to keep a horse happy and healthy. It's not all about cantering, jumping or showing, but more about a connection you make with a horse, and with other people who love them. I look forward to this summer with all of our riding camps and all the great kids I will meet. As the old saying goes...
"There's just something about the outside of a horse that's good for the inside of a girl!"
