Today, Saturday, May 20, 2017, we held our first event with the Ronald McDonald House Charities. We were able to host three families - 6 kids and 4 adults total. The kids ranged from 16 months old to 9 years old. The younger kids were quite timid at first to even approach the horses let alone sit on them for a horseback ride. But after some time, they were excited to sit on as many horses as we could put them on. The older 3 kids seemed to be in heaven. We had parents riding too, but they seemed to really enjoy taking pictures of their young ones enjoying riding.
We had 10 horses and 14 volunteers for our first event. We definitely couldn't have done it without all our volunteers - Jessica, Kailyn, Kailtin, Terri, Todd, Marcie, Becky, Elaine, Amber Dawn, Cecily, Abbie, Liz, Maddie, and Cindy!
Our volunteers came out early to make sure the horses were ready and worked, so they would be nice and relaxed for the families. After the event, our volunteers went out on a team building ride to end the day.
