Today, I received one of the best emails from Steven Spector. I am honored to have gotten to know Team Sophie! Everyone of the family are so supportive and encouraging! Sophie had her last lesson here last week. Sophie was a joy to work with. She was bossy and told me what we should do in each lesson and certainly kept me on my toes. I will miss working with this "horse girl".
Stephen wrote, "I want to express my gratitude to yourself and all the amazing volunteers that supported Sophie during her lessons and camps over the past year or so. You have ignited a passion within Sophie for horses that is certainly not going away anytime soon and (I think J) we are grateful.
Sophie is incredibly lucky to have built a foundation of horse awareness, knowledge and riding ability from yourself and while she will continue her horse therapy in Boise, please know that you have set in motion something unique and special for her. I am also thankful to you for all the energy, commitment, and patience it took to get Sophie comfortable riding horses. Your gift of caring not only for horses but people is clear and Sophie will be a better person for having had the opportunity to know you.
I wish you continued success as you build your ranch and therapy center and will certainly stay in touch to keep you updated on Sophie as well support your efforts."
Stephen, your daughter will be missed here. We had big plans. give her a big hug from me and Mr Jiggles, and Okie, and Oreo and oh what the heck from all of the herd that she loved so much. They will miss their weekly Sophie Smorgasbord.
