Tuesdays with Tenneson; Test Time
Last week, we had some very special guests at the barn. The staff told me we were hosting a “therapeutic riding workshop and certification.” Our guests came from all over the Midwest to participate. They came to learn how to become therapeutic riding instructors, just like so many of our staff. I overheard a lot of their classes they held in the barn. They talked about everything from teaching riding skills to picking out the perfect therapeutic riding horse (aka horses just like me!).
After three days of learning, the barn got REALLY busy. The candidates taught therapeutic riding lessons in front of two judges in order to earn their official certification. The barn was bustling with candidates, volunteers, riders, and staff in order to put on this event. Thank you to everyone who came to help out! Although the whole weekend was fun I have a favorite part. I liked it most when the candidates and judges came to say a special hello to me! I can’t wait until our next workshop.
