Amazing Day At Manawale’a Riding Center
It was an amazing day at Manawale’a Riding Center located in Waimanalo on Oahu’s eastern shore. Manawale’a creates a safe nurturing environment where people with special needs can experience the unconditional love and bonding horses provide.
I got to work with Humvee, a beautiful and gentle mare. An adaptive saddle with a built in backrest and a hoyer lift made the transfer from wheelchair to horseback effortless.
Riding Humvee was incredible and with the adaptive saddle, balance was a breeze. As her shoulders rose in stride so did my thighs giving a sensation of walking. It was wonderful how she felt like an extension of my body. Afterward riding I got to spend time bonding and grooming Humvee.
The riding center was teeming with animal life from horses to dogs to cats and chickens. Such a beautiful experience! Aloha
