golden dreams

Today I had the opportunity to spend the morning at Golden Dreams Therapeutic RIding Center in Middleburg, VA where my cousin, Christie, works as a Recreational Therapist for individuals with special needs. Coincidentally, and by no work on our part, I happen to provide speech therapy to a young girl who receives horseback riding therapy from Christie. This morning we saddled up Tater Tot, also referred to as “Tate,” and teamed up for some joint recreation and speech/language therapy. It was amazing to witness the gentle connection between the massive thoroughbred gelding and the quiet voice of a young girl. Few words were shared, yet the communication was clear between the two.

As I made my way along the tree canopied country roads on the drive home, I began to visit some golden dreams of my own. The dream of someday living a simple, small farm life surrounded only by nature’s purest and the ones that I love. Until then, I will continue to venture along those windy country roads…gazing, attracting, dreaming.
