Seaside in the News!

So, the guilt over not having posted anything has increased incrementally every week in which I have remained in arrears... I have, therefore, finally decided to get "back on the pony." The summer thus far has been a whirlwind of exciting events, but these have not for the most part had much to do with the equine industry. Not wanting to blather on indefinitely about the middling inanities of my own life, I vowed to keep this blog equi-centric. Thus, because the "equi" part of my life has been sorely lacking, I've not kept up my blog.

But I digress, as there is now incredible news!

The charity that I work for, Seaside Therapeutic Riding, has finally gotten the funding together to begin in earnest its "Horses for Heroes" program, an offshoot of the original program developed by the North American Riding for the Handicapped Asssociation (NARHA), about which you can all read here. Yesterday, New York Daily News attended our second Horses for Heroes lesson and wrote up a fantastic news article detailing the event. This has really underscored for me the incredible value of positive thinking, and the way that doing good for others can turn back into feeling good for yourself.
