Victory Gallop has been such a blessing to me and my family.
Victory Gallop has been such a blessing to me and my family. The diagnosis of our daughter’s exceptionality came right after major changes in our family’s life. Finding Victory Gallop, came at an important time for our daughter. After meeting everyone and applying for financial aid we cried when we found out that our daughter would be accepted at Victory Gallop. After a rocky start on the horse, her instructor Kim, worked to calmed my daughter down. It was an amazing interaction between horse, rider, and instructor. Jayla has not been the same since. She went through major mental growth from that point on. Within a couple of months her confidence grew. From removing training wheels from her bike, to moving into a full-size mountain bike. She learned that if she could control her horse, Tugs, there was no reason that she couldn’t control her bike. Since lesson one, she has learned not to be afraid to try new things. This includes, skate boarding, the desire to ride trick bikes, and recently finding a love for archery.
The interaction my other older daughter has had with Sue, Kim, Kelly and Maria has moved me as well. My other daughter started volunteering at Victory Gallop, which gave her a purpose in life. She would come home on Saturday mornings and brag about a little boy she worked with. I also have tried to jump in when I can. It might be as simple as picking up a broom or helping at fundraisers, but the desire to help when I can is so overwhelming. Victory Gallop has not only touched both my daughters, but they have touched our entire family.
