Every single person in the world has a huge passion for something and I believe all of us here are very passionate about horse riding. No matter what is our job or our daily obligations, we can’t wait for our free time just so we can enjoy all the activities that we like doing the most. However, at a certain point in our life, we might not have enough time to do all these activities and we get older.
A lot of old people have problems mainly with their bones as they become very delicate and because of it, they need to be very careful when they try to play different sports or even horse riding. It takes huge courage to go after things that are dangerous for our health, but sometimes, when the passion is too strong, it is worth taking such risks and a lot of old people. especially in the horse world have proven that it is worth taking the risk when you can feel those amazing emotions one last time.
This is the example with this lady in the video below. Her wish became true by a project in the Netherlands called “Hidden Desires,” a joint initiative by the members of the Green Cross and The Care Group, operates with the sole intention of bringing a much-needed smile to the faces of people who rely on the care of others.
Hidden Desires take great pride in granting wishes for those who don’t see a whole lot of joy in their lives anymore, helping to plan for simple pleasures like taking someone to their hometown for ice-cream or seeing their old sporting team play. On this particular occasion, it was giving someone the opportunity to ride a horse one last time.
For this 87-year old who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, horses have always played an important role in her life, and she was quite an accomplished rider herself. In the video, she goes for a ride one last time because she misses riding so much and she would do anything to try it again. She is an inspiration for every person out there. Share her story with others who can get inspired as well.
