Meeting Lady and Dreamer

I spent the morning meeting Maria Hurley's ponies Dreamer and Lady. Maria is a riding instructor who owns We will be starting a hippotherapy program with Judy Lawless-owner of Stoneridge Farm in Haverhill, Mass.
Dreamer and Lady seemed like perfect hippotherapy horses, a good size to make reaching easy, smart, obedient and eager to please.

We introduced a few of my many weird toys. One shown here is a ring stack made out of a tube with a squeaky ball attached. Dreamer didn't mind having either the cloth or plastic rings on his body, having them fall to the ground next to him, nor the squeaky sound. Next week I will be meeting Charmer-Judy's horse at Stoneridge farm.

Stoneridge Farm-
I like the indoor arena and if you squint you might make out the view of the riding trails through that back door.
Please call Maria for information at: (781) 771-1565

Peaceful grazing horses surrounded by riding rings and trails.
