Morning Dove’s Jolly “Reindeer” Join Zionsville Holiday Parade

Posted on: No Comments

Our sweetest pony, Lexie decked in her fancy Morning Dove blanket and Morning Dove’s mascot Lyric pulling her holiday cart joined the fun on December 3 for Zionsville’s Annual Holiday Parade.  Pony, dog and humans all felt the joy and cheer of our wonderful neighbors as we paraded down Main St.  The perfect start to the holiday season!!

Holiday Open House was a jolly good time!

Thank you to all our elves for making the barn glow with holiday lights and cheer – we are blessed to have you in our family!  From the do-it-yourself cookie decorating, yummy table of treats and cocoa, to the HUGE stockings hanging from each of our horse’s stalls it was a day of giving and joy.  We shared the afternoon with our riders and families, volunteers, instructors, staff and board members.  Our horses enjoyed being the center of attention as they peered out over their stall guards for a rub on the nose and hugs. And, they were very grateful for the pounds of carrots, apples and peppermints that filled their stockings. These treats will surely keep them warm and happy for the entire winter!  We wish you all a blessed holiday season!

Thanks to a generous gift from the Glick Foundation, Morning Dove has (finally!) begun work on its new sand arena.  Come this spring we will be able to hold lessons outside in a large, sand based arena. Come see us!!

Fall Session comes to a close with great success!

Morning Dove completed the Fall session with many miracle moments to remember and celebrate.  Many of our riders achieved new successes this fall — their first trail ride, their first canter steps, first ride on a “big” horse, and so many more.  Our partnership with St. Vincent Pediatric Rehabilitation continues to give us all beautiful moments of progress and insight.  We completed our Horses for Heroes pilot with the VA Hospital and are excited to have several of our veterans continuing at Morning Dove as riders and/or volunteers.  Horses for Heroes will triple its impact in 2012 with three sessions!  We are so grateful to our community of volunteers, partners, riders and families for allowing us to do what we do!
