Can anyone help a few kids?
I don't know if this is the right way to go about this or not. I run a small lesson program. I have a few kids in my lesson program whose parents don't have a ton of money. Most of the kids I teach have learning disabilities or self esteem issues. We all know horses are great listeners and wonderful healers. I completely encourage their love of horses and allow them to work in the barn for lessons. I have 2 girls in particular that I can't keep out of the barn. The weather can be horrible and they will constantly groom, do stalls, clean water buckets or just sweep so they can be in around the horses. Their parents are both single parents with no help financially from the other parent. These kids love riding. The one girl is a teenager and she fell head over heels in love with a thoroughbred gelding that we rescued...needless to say I have a oft heart and that gelding is still here and let's just say he's not looking for a home anytime soon. These kids all had problems before they found horses and I don't want them to lose this. I'm hoping if anyone has anything they don't want riding apparel or tack wise you can help them. I've collected some stuff from my old equipment and from others whom were going to toss stuff. We were able to obtain high boots for the teenager but the other little girl needs everything. I've done a lot for these kids and want to see them continue. Please PM me if you can help....I'd love to hand them anything they are very deserving.
