It has been almost two months since writing my last post. Given that I had been writing about my journey back to riding after my accident, I want to make sure everyone knows that my absence from the blogosphere has not been due to trouble on the path to recovery. Like for many of us, life just got busy with both work and play. You can expect the next installment of my recovery journey in the next couple of days.
With September came the start of Cubbing season and the qualifying meets for the Junior North American Field Hunter Championships. Sometime over the summer, I forgot how wonderful it is to spend hours on horseback with my sons galloping across some of the most amazingly beautiful countryside. With October also came the bi-annual board meeting of the Horses and Humans Research Foundation whom I actively support. Before the meeting, Barbara and David Roux graciously opened their beautiful St. Bride’s Farm to host a reception, helping us spread the word about the work that HHRF is doing. Later, at the board meeting, we awarded our eighth $50,000 research grant to a project which is studying the effectiveness of equine assisted therapy for youth that suffer from PTSD and other effects of trauma.
Work has also brought the launching of a new website, continued development of the Personal Awareness for Sport Performance Clinic format, and the start up of a internet-based Performance Enhancement Group.
The new website was developed to provide a central place for friends and clients to keep abreast of the latest developments at Riding Far. I am working hard to transfer my followers and subscribers to the new website and hope to have that done in the near future. To make sure you don’t miss any posts I would encourage you to visit the blog page of the new site and click on the “Subscribe” button. While you’re there take a look around. We welcome feedback and your suggestions.
Looking forward to seeing you on the new site. RidingFar.com
