Hooping it up at summer activity day.
One would ask, doesn’t Jowana have enough going on in her life, how in the world can she fit anything else into her days? I ask myself that same question. After my first production, “Le Cirque of Horses” I planned to take a little break and then start working on a production for the fall. My plans were shot when my partner in crime told me she didn’t have the time to proceed with another production at this time. Worse yet, she cancelled the savvy team that I had put over a year of my time into. Well, that’s how it goes sometimes, everyone is busy these days just trying to make a living. I certainly can’t blame her. But, what about the kids who wanted to be involved with horses? I don’t have a bunch of miniature horses standing around in need of attention but, certainly there was something I could do so, I started another 4-H club.
For those of you who don’t know me, I had the Small World Dance Team for 17 years and retired only four years ago. After my daughter’s, Jenna and Tracy out grew the team I just didn’t have the drive to continue. I traded in my dance shoes for boots and my horses were my new dance partners. Unfortunately, there isn’t a big demand for dancing horses. Don’t know why, they are truely spectacular! When I adopted Savannah, I knew I wanted to use her as a therapy horse. With that in mind I developed a plan to teach horsemanship through arts and crafts, reading, writing, cooking, sewing and photography. The children will also help with the therapy program. This summer I have six girls who meet every Thursday to have a day of fun and friendship. Stay tuned for more stories about our new club. Did you visit? Leave a comment.
