Uncommon things have happened
Everyone has been so mindful of one another, that it is making it so easy to be in the present. We returned to JHTRA for another fun filled day of bonding with the horses. It’s astonishing how comfortable the majority of the participants are sitting in the saddle and riding alone. An equine dentist was able to stop by and showed us how to examines a horse’s mouth. She asked if anyone would like to put their hand in the horse’s mouth to feel what she was examining. Whoa Nelly! Michael jumped front and center and was ready to go! Owen was a 1/2 second behind him. Both disinfected their hands and next the you know, they’re elbow deep in the mouth! Unbelievable! No hesitation, no fear!
Early afternoon the Sagebrush Grille food truck pulled up and made a scrumptious spread. During lunch, Owen said a few heartfelt few words of appreciation that put a little tear in the rest of the team’s eyes. The Aspire group thanked Solera and JHTRA for their time and energy throughout this mission. After leaving JHTRA, our first stop was to meet a park ranger who gave a presentation about the land and animals we might come across on the hike. We were taught how to identify different types of scat and animal tracks. Along the hike to Phelps Lake we stopped to observe a bear in the bushes above a ridge about 80 yards from the trail. There was no fear in the group, just an adventurous wonder that kept us watching for 10 minutes
We ended the day at the Jackson Hole Playhouse where we ate dinner in the oldest building in Jackson, followed by the featured play “The Ballad of Cat Ballou” A 1965 comedy western musical!
Goals are being achieved.
Uncommon things have happened.
Transformation is in the works.
