Bridle Up Hope has been such an amazing experience for my three daughters. They came closer together as sisters as they shared in pursuing a common interest. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens being integrated with the lessons was especially helpful. My daughter Lizzie said, “I loved the connection I had with my instructor. I loved the way I got to connect what I learned to animals. I appreciated the visual and active learning because that’s how I learn. I learned that the way for me to be connected with others is to remain in a calm state. We learned how to regulate our emotions to help the horses and how to use that with others.”
The three of them had the opportunity to become more connected as they went through the program together. They had fun sharing their individual experiences and fun stories with each other on the rides home after lessons and with the rest of the family at home. We’re glad to see the self-confidence and self-awareness our girls gained while being a part of the Bridle Up Hope program.
