left, 87 year old Ruth Still from Canada, visits Scotland for one of Julie'sspecialized Safety or Confidence-Building Clinics in 2009. Another senior student of Julie's, Colin Harris, started as a beginner and wenton, age 79 to learn to jump cross rails and small logs so that he could join his daughter on a fox-hunt in England - senior citizen style!
right, one of Julie's therapeutic riding 'special' students at Goldcreek Farm, Ontario, with two sidewalker volunteers. Casey had not spoken anything but grunts his whole life...When Julie insisted after several lessons that his pony-mare wouldn't move unless Casey said 'Walk', Casey, inspired and enthusiastic for his weekly rides, shouted "Ahhhhh K!" Now he can do all his exercises proudly AND verbally!
