you'd be surprised in what the disabled can do...and actually teach you. like I have said before this is a tender subject for me because I have worked with many disabled in different ways. I taught them and they taught many things in return! for example...

http://abc.go.com/primetime/xtremeho...on_family.html
the boy... lance was one of my many students I taught to ride horses ! After seeing some of the things I have seen, and heard that have went on in that barn with the simple friendship of a horse...I believe anything is possible. sometimes a reach but if you are willing, it can be done.

I have posted enough info about my accident, so I'm not going to do it here. what I would like to post is the people with the open mind and big hearts do alot more for the disabled than they think or appreciated for. the disabled are an amasing group.

take your mind off that 07 Jeep you want to get or the tires, lift kit you'd like to get and think for a second about having another day to live regardless of what it brings you. too many people take this for granted. just my opinion.

Im not sure if that worked. yes I was the cool teacher to all of my students. As 'cool' as I could be. you have to be the teather/Instructor though. It could be rough at times, let me tell you. But all my volunteers loved Lance, especially the young gals. he was fun to work with and they had a crush on stefan Lances older brother. remind you Lance does have AI he is Autistic so concentrating on certain things can be difficult and even talking. Lance from what I know has read all the harry potter 800 and some odd page books, rides horses, so never under estimate the 'disabled, less fortunate than our selves.' that man that is doing the down hill skiing, remember he once did see so although tough to do. he knows what everthing should feel, like and that is a big advantage. it is like you doing something with your eyes closed. if you did it alot you should know it pretty well. I just jymnastic lines on my horse with my eyes closed. much can be done, if you put your mind to it!

[QUOTE=TJrockdogg] the disabled are an amasing group.QUOTE]


More than anyone could imagen....like I said they taught me a lot !! from friendship, trust, even believeing in my own self because they believed and trusted in me the whole time !

if anyone would like to experince working with the disabled...OATS is the place. This is where lance rides. volunteers are always needed especially men to help us with the adult men riders. It is an eye opening wonderful experience. If anyone is interested PM me I would met up with you so you are not alone although everyone out there is very acceping to others. I no longer instruct because I was planning on moving and the price to keep my NARHA instructors licences up to date was quite a bit, but for sure I would go out for someone to experience it, and I do miss it.
