I was back at my favorite place last month: Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center! They were having their annual horse and dressage shows, and I was honored to be a part of these special events. The riders were adorable (as always), the staff was wonderful, and the horses and facilities just sparkled in their first shows at the new Dunmire Stables.
My most favorite moment of this years’ shows happened after one riding group received their ribbons. As they were exiting the arena, one rider came up to me and, without saying anything, grabbed my forearm and held up their ribbon for me to see. It was such a pure, sweet, and very special moment for me. Saying nothing at all said so much to me. I even get a little choked up typing this now. It’s moments like these that I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world and why I feel so lucky to be a part of Little Bit. Can’t wait till next year!
I recently was at one of my most favorite places: the Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center. I just love when I’m able to go there to photograph and support them. It’s such a blessing and an honor to be a part of an organization that is such a positive force in the community and makes so many people’s lives a better place.
The event I was most recently there for was for the Rider Showcase. This is an event that mostly serves to have student riders demonstrate the types of therapy that Little Bit provides. It is also an opportunity for Little Bit to provide answers to questions people might have about the program and their current facility, as well as their new facility that is opening in April 2013.
It was a very fun event and a great opportunity to generate support for the Center. Here are some photos of the kids, parents, family members, staff, and horses of Little Bit!
