Lessons began again at the center on Tuesday, February 18, 2014. The center was buzzing with activity as friends greeted each other, new volunteers were oriented and instructors saw to final details for lessons. Students arrived with smiles on their faces, greeted by new and returning volunteers alike. The horses seemed to be enjoying the activity and attention after the 2 month-break, and stepped right back into the job of carrying their special passengers. While many things were going on at the center during the break (cleaning, work days, volunteer training sessions, preparations for the gala), what all of the staff was most looking forward to was the start of lessons. That is what we are all about. The center is not the same without our riders and all they bring to the center. Welcome back to all the members of the Xenophon family. It is going to be a great year.
