For those of you who aren’t familiar with Hope in the Saddle, this is an organization that gathers stories about how horses have quite simply made a difference in someone’s life. Their mission is to “share some of the most meaningful and important stories to emerge from the equestrian world—stories of how our relationships with horses can help us overcome life’s toughest challenges.” Hope in the Saddle does a great job with posting a wide variety of stories, all with the common thread of how special and amazing our horse partners are.
In response to a Facebook advertisement, Renew Therapeutic Riding Center submitted an article to Hope in the Saddle’s 2017 Therapy Horse of the Year contest. Out of over 100 entries for the contest, Renew’s article highlighting Honey was selected as one of the final four contestants! Although we didn’t end up winning the grand prize, we celebrate Honey, her accomplishment, and how she represents Renew’s mission to enhance the well-being of individuals in our community.
We recently received the certificate in the image above from Hope in the Saddle for being one of the finalists. The certificate is now located in the waiting room at the barn. A special thank you to Hope in the Saddle for the opportunity to celebrate our loyal, hardworking horses in this fun way.
