Horses for Heroes

July took us back to Colorado for the Challenge Aspen Horses for Heroes program in conjunction with Sopris Therapy Services.  We had an AMAZING trip with friends, old and new.  I spent the week with my horse, Jilly, and Sean spent his week getting to know Navajo.  The program incorporated music and art therapy into the daily sessions with singer/songwriter Mack Bailey and artist Sheri Gaynor.  There was an afternoon of fishing and swapping TBI stories up on the mountain.  Our week concluded with a cookout at the Carbondale Rodeo.  

Sean and I also attended the Vince Gill and Amy Grant Golf Classic, an annual fundraiser for Challenge Aspen.  We had the opportunity to visit the horses at Sopris before the evening's charity dinner and concert. The music was beautiful and we were able to speak with Vince and Amy after the show. We are forever grateful for the opportunities provided to us by Challenge Aspen.
