We all know that one little girl who has a passion for horses and dreams of owning her own pony one day. For many, that girl was me. For as long as I can remember, I have had a burning passion for equines and the sport that comes along with them. I have had the privilege of witnessing, firsthand, the many blessings that horses can bring into a person’s life. Statistics state that approximately twenty percent of teenagers will suffer with depression before they reach adulthood. That number may not seem big, but it is too big for this particular case. I admit that I am, and will forever remain, a small number in that percentage but thanks to horses, I made it through, I made it to adulthood. I plan on using my degree in Equestrian Science to help prepare me to run my own horse barn that will provide a place for troubled teens to come and learn about these magnificent creatures as well as experience God’s unconditional love for them. You see, horses seem to have some sort of healing power within them, something that warms the soul and heals you from all emotional and mental wounds. I dream of creating a place where young people can come to be healed in more than one aspect of their lives. I dream of a day when I can make that one little girl’s dream come true.
