Remembering Twist – One year later…

It’s been a year since Twist crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  His huge light and presence here is missed every day.  In honor of his one year passing, here is his song…  

 

As promised here is the video and song tribute celebrating the many magical days we spent with our dear departed Twist.

 

We ask that you share as much as possible on your social media and hopefully we can reach our funding target. Please copy this link too – thank you! https://www.gofundme.com/f/blue-rider-rainbow-for-twist


Fall is in the air

Fall is definitely making itself known. Many schedules are changing, and so is ours. We have openings for home schools during the day, and some after school lesson spaces still available. We will continue to have fun, even with the COVID restrictions in place.

We are so happy to be able to share our horses and therapy with everyone again. Because we work with many immune suppressed clients, we ask everyone who uses our facilities to please adhere to our face covering, social distancing, and restricted areas guidelines. A video is posted under programs as to what you can expect when you come to lessons. We are grateful for the support we have received in helping us keep a safe environment for all. If you are interested in programs, please email or call, we will respond in as timely a fashion as we can.

On a different, exciting note – we will welcome a new mare to our herd tomorrow. She is an Icelandic, 6 years old, and her name is Hekla. More about her to follow…


July 15th news

Horses, clients, and staff here at Blue Rider continue the balancing act of daily living in this new reality. We have had a good stress-less reopening phase in the last weeks. Our social distancing, face covering, hand sanitizing, and cleaning protocols seem to be working for everyone, and are something we are getting used to. The horses have to learn so much coming here, that it seems we humans can adjust as well. The horses and instructors are so grateful to be doing their jobs again! We have so many meaningful encounters every day, and are thankful for them. Desi and Pesto the barn cats are beyond ecstatic to be seeing friends and getting much needed hugs and pats. Email us if you would like to join in the fun!
