How do you know when you are in the Right Place at the Right Time doing Good Things for Great People? Because you can’t stop smiling when you leave!
That’s how I feel when I’ve finished volunteering for a riding session at Grace Lake Ministries in Anna, Texas. Under the Executive Direction of Holly Robinson, Grace Lake is a God-Centered Therapeutic Horsemanship Program focused on improving the quality of life of those it serves with Special Needs, Special Horses, and Special People.
One of the most rewarding moments was recently hearing a father brag of his daughter’s accomplishments after 22 years of therapeutic riding. Born with both physical and mental challenges, she now owns her own horse, participates in 125-mile Trail Rides, and can “pony” another horse while loping. His favorite part – hearing her speak confidently and articulately about her passion for horseback riding with friends and strangers alike.
