My grandson Aidan was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at the age of six. Needless to say my entire family was devastated as we fought to get him clear from the cancer. He did clear but the family still felt the emotional devastation of the disease. Lia invited us to come out at experience the horses and the environment at the equestrian center.
The experience was uplifting! I watched as my three grandchildren rode the horses and how they changed as they rode! Lia even put me on her horse Marco. I had not ridden in years. I was transformed.
Later my late husband was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and could only hug and touch the horses. He beamed and said how much he forgot about his cancer. That was worth a million to me.
I highly recommend the experience for those who have gone through the battle against a cancer diagnosis. Even if you don’t ride and just want to watch or touch the horses it is life changing.
