Life is never perfect. You have to take the rough with the smooth; something we learn daily at Cavalli Foundation in our work with the animals, with the children who come for riding activities and those who come to do Animal Assisted Therapy. The happiness and the laughter of the children bring joy even when we are sad deep down in our hearts.
We have managed to fill the summer months with Camps, Summer School and Pony Club mornings in spite of the constant threat of closure and confinement due to possible COVID-19 contagion. We’ve followed the protocols of hygiene, social distancing and mask wearing and had a very successful summer.
At the same time, this summer has brought us all a great sadness. The time came for Midnight Special, a horse we brought over from England more than 20 years ago, to leave us, in spite of all our efforts to overcome what ailed him. He was healthy and strong until the moment came for him to go. RIP Midnight Special.
Our farm animals have brought a special sparkle to the eyes of the youngsters taking part in Summer School. These are a group of younger children, from 3 years to 9 years of age, who have missed going to school with their peers and have spent months controlled at home in the company of adults without being able to play games with their friends. You can imagine the fun they’ve had! Talk about letting your hair down!
