See you soon, Riders!
DAY 4! The time has finally come to complete one of our biggest missions. During our morning assemble, several participants expressed how anxious they were to not only get on their horse but to ride on the trail for an entire hour. That was overcome very quickly, as everyone finished the trail ride!
While we rotated the trail ride between two groups, we volunteer our time painting barrels for JHTRA. All eight barrels are unique, as they show the individualism of each participant. This will leave a lasting impression of the Aspiration Summit at the therapeutic arena. Can’t wait to see and use them next year.
Finally squeezed in a little rest time before heading out to Tony Aquila’s Split Creek Ranch. Once we arrived we were greeted with fried pickles and popcorn! Our final celebration dinner included all the people we met during the week to help reach our goals. We capped it off with Teton Skies who had two astronomers and their telescopes sharing everything that was above us in this scenic place called Wyoming.
Not only were the participants awestruck of Split Creek Ranch but they were able to meet Tony and speak about their week. Sunday will be bittersweet as we built this bond together and now must say, “See you next time!”
