WoW!! we just had a most loving and moving experience at TKAAF with 100’s of hipsters, skating and gaming peeps and all these amazing kid and adult musicians – all in some way or other donated to our cause. We are still receiving checks and as it is now we have the money to:
Buy two Christ Saddles from Germany (they have waved the postal fee)
These are the best therapy saddles out there for our needs I am soooo excited. We will all use of them as they build core stregth, connect us to horses energetically and physically via their erganomic design and the piles of sheep skin help us stay on out in the trails.
We have so much tack we need and bits of this and that to make things safer and easier, daisy reins (stop Willy and Cherry eating grass now the Spring is here) nice girths for the horses so they don’t get pinched. Bigger wheel barrow with tyres that don’t puncture etc
Once I buy what we need I will post all we spent on what so that everyone donating can see where their money goes to.
I am so very grateful…
Just to explain how it used to work here when we needed money for ongoing education and tack etc – I would raise money by selling my paintings and then put what would be my wages back into the business from the full paying Conscious Rider students for Classical riding and sessions for EAGALA and Horseboy Therapies. It seemed allot easier that way but tax season is upon us and I needed to save for the taxes when I was lucky enough to meet with a business woman who advised me to stop putting my ‘wages’ money back into the biz and fund raise. So thanks to Band Aid School of music and TKAAF – the funds we needed for the saddles and other essentials has been raised, I’m so touched and grateful.
