We started out early with a lesson with a new student! She is awesome and we will have so much fun together! She is going to teach me how to do video blogging! I am so excited! One more lesson before she goes on vacation for the month of July and I am already missing her!
Then we had 7 volunteers out and they got a ton of work done including soaking Rocky, Romney, Cool Man and Mr Jiggles hooves. Honey got lunged, the round pen and surrounding area got picked up, weed killer was sprayed in the arena, round pen and driveway, wire was run for electricity to the round pen and water was run to the arena. We might get the mister fan up and running before camps start yet!
And most excitingly, I had a meeting with A Glimmer of Hope and they still want to support us!!!! I thought that they were going to say that we have not served enough clients in our work to ride program, but they love the program as a whole and want us to succeed! I can't tell you how grateful I am! I had to get a report out to them tonight so I had to work hard at completing that.
Tomorrow, we are taking Romney, Dawn, Cool Man, Avalon, and Mr Jiggles on a trail ride to send Michael Thater off to his welding school. It will be good training for the horses, but more importantly it is a well deserved gift to one of our hardest working volunteers. Michael will be missed! Check out the trailer that he finished out for us... our future parade vehicle! All it needs is our logo!
