My story begins long ago when I was 14. I worked at a stables and bought my own horse, ET, who was a 3 month old filly. I was with her every day and trained her myself with the help of the stable owner and a library book. I had her for 5 years and then went off to college without her. Twenty some years later, it had been 2 years since I visited ET. On a break from work, I went to the old stables to see if the 31 year old horse was still there. She was! Lots of hugs and kisses were given and then I said goodbye to her for the last time as she was put down 2 weeks later. This left me with a longing and an open space in my heart for something. In college, I studied psychology and have always been very interested in human behavior and learning. So, when I saw an article on the Shea Center, it just rang a bell in my head that I needed to see more; the photograph of the rider drew me to want to be a volunteer in this program. It has been over a year now as a volunteer and I still have so much to learn, but I have seen so much progress in the riders that I have had the opportunity to serve. Seeing that the energy of a horse helps the healing of a human has been a great joy for me. Limits diminish in the arenas as we all work together. Serving the horses as they serve the riders has become my favorite thing and on Tuesdays, I do it the Shea way.
