The greatest clients
I always marvel at how a small group of strangers can come together and be honest, open, and supportive of one another while working with the horses. This past weekend was the first time our session was interrupted by rain. In Central Oregon rain is sometimes a maybe and rarely occurs with more than a brief sprinkling. This time the rain started an hour into our time together and the women were so game and good natured about it. We popped up the canopy, I ran to get extra coats to share and riding gloves for our cold hands. The activities with horses would still be in the elements, so I brought out riding helmets for everyone. As we sat in our group, all dressed in my coats and riding helmets, I thought how wonderful these clients are who don’t complain but who work with whatever is at hand. Horses do the same. They don’t complain, they roll with the elements. I am so fortunate to work with individuals who seek personal growth, respect what we have to learn from horses, and who accept my funny offerings to make it a more comfortable experience… all with a smile!
