You’re the one they turn to when an anxious child starts her lessons. An older gal, gentle and calm. You introduce her to the world of ponies and horses. Your chestnut coloured, velvety soft fur is a delight to run hands through while you stand patiently beside her. Your excitement in seeing the child you recognize is expressed with a gentle nuzzle, so as not to startle her.
I sense that you know the impact that you have on her. Each week she meets you, her confidence grows. Soon, her confidence will grow beyond your gentle service. She’ll graduate to a younger pony who can handle an inexperienced little rider taking over the reins.
But, although temporary, she’ll cherish each moment that she spends with you. And for always, we’ll appreciate and remember the courage you’ve helped her find.
