Teaching Specialty Students
Every student is special and comes with their own unique set of challenges. We have been blessed in many ways to learn new life lessons through our students. I was recently giving a lesson to a special needs teenager whom has been away from her family horse for about a year but had some early riding experience. Before she rode she was very quiet, tentative, and unsure about what the lesson might bring. As the lesson proceeded, she became more and more happy and joyful. After the lesson, she was relaxed, talkative, smiling. It was a totally rewarding experience for me to bring such happiness out from within the student. It totally makes all those after work hours worth it. Bless our mare Stella too for bringing such joy to a challenged teenager.
