Hillary was warm, kind, compassionate and encouraging. Having some physical limitations from a car accident, I was unsure if I could even get on the horse, let alone ride. She knew my background, understood my feelings but did not let me give up. She was so encouraging, not just with words, but actions as well. She literally had me physically connect with the horse and his strength, which calmed us both. I tried a number of times to get on, but she encouraged me to "take a leap of faith" and just do it, so I did. It was amazing, and I am looking forward to my lessons to build my core, posture and physical confidence in the next step in my healing.
