Over the next few weeks we will be sharing blog posts from our awesome interns from Coastal Carolina University. We are so lucky to have their enthusiasm and hope they learn a lot from their experience with us!
This week at Fidelis we had an all boys group come out. I had a group of three this week who road Tee.
Tee is my favorite horse to work with because he is very sweet and understanding. Half of my group had been to Fidelis before so they knew how to groom and tack, but one of my group members had never been to Fidelis before and had never been around horses before. With support from his teammates and I he got the courage to go near Tee and help groom him.
Teamwork plays a huge role at Fidelis because the kids need teamwork to successfully work together and to complete the task at hand. All of the kids were very confident once they got onto the horse. Their favorite things to do was weave through the pole and to trot. The kids love trotting because they get to go fast and it gives them a sense of freedom.
Once my entire group was done riding they said that Tee was their new favorite horse and that they couldn’t wait to come back and ride again. – Noelle
