PATH Intl. Vermont State Chair, Sue Miller
High Horses Therapeutic Riding Program
The Vermont/New Hampshire state meeting was on September 19th at Rhythm of the Rein in Marshfield, Vermont.
Wonderful presenters gave boundless information on breathing and stretching using yoga (Jamie Fields) and keeping fit as an instructor to better help clients (Lorna Young). It was a warm and sunny day and the exercise portion of the day was outside under a charming tree. Then we learned about all of the many people involved in coming together in a team approach to goal writing for clients and how goals help our clients in daily living outside of the riding arena (Dianne Lashoones). This was followed by an informative demonstration of driving, where all wishing to be given the opportunity to ground drive, got to hold the reins (Elizabeth Belote). The day concluded with a tour of the Rhythm of the Reins facility. It was a small but friendly gathering with lively talk and exchange of ideas. Next year’s meeting will be in New Hampshire with hopes of it being at the University of New Hampshire. We will keep you posted.
