Actually, for my mental health.
My family had horses while I was growing up and my mom and I had horses together after I got married. Four years ago, my husband and I moved our family from North Carolina to Connecticut and I had to leave my horses behind. I've suffered from clinical depression for most of my adult life and not having horses around exacerbated my condition.
I have a genetic anomaly that means anti-depressants don't work for me like they should. In looking for alternative therapies my doctor suggested that I get involved in horses again. I tried several leases, but because of my size leasing opportunities were few and the ones I did find didn't work out.
I've always enjoyed groundwork (maybe even more than riding) and I'm good at it, so this horse seems like a good fit for me.
