I am 14 years old, and I have been riding at Centaur Stride since I was three years old. I learned how to ride on Maple, and for the past seven years, I’ve been riding Pixie. I love riding Pixie through the woods and exploring new trails. I enjoy working with the instructors and learning how to groom and take care of Pixie. Riding horses has helped me learn the rhythm of a natural walking gait. It has improved my balance. Plus, it’s just fun! I want to continue helping Centaur Stride, the horses, and all the other people who ride there by participating in this year’s walkathon. I’m going to be walking to help raise the $3500 needed to take care of Pixie for the next year. I would love it if could join me on Sunday, March 31 at the Chautauqua Mall. If you can’t make it, you can sponsor me. Thank you for helping me to help Centaur Stride!
