This was Vlad's first time in a paddock. He was right in the middle of the paddock and the horses and their precious riders circled around him as he gave rides. One of the horses, Peaches, wasn't sure what this strange creature was in her paddock and was initially quite anxious.We stopped rocking and let her slowly come up and introduce herself to Vlad, eventually sniffing his muzzle and deciding he was safe. In this case, the therapy was equine as well as human!
We had a grand time giving rides. One of our first riders of the day spent almost all of her ride on her cell phone...calling friends and telling them that she was riding a unicorn! Kids rode, parents rode, horses got to bond with a unicorn, and it was a truly delightful day. Many thanks to Hoofbeats to Healing for hosting us!
