Personal Statement - Equine Rehabilitation and Therapy

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Personal Statement ?Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and once it has done so, she will have to accept that her life will be radically changed.? This quote by Ralph Emerson defines my relationship with horses.
