It was a hot, sunny Saturday when we arrived at in Humboldt, TN on July 23, 2011 but that didn’t keep all of friends, family and community away! We were greeted with a fantastic reception as we drove with people clapping and waving anxiously awaiting Old No. 7’s arrival. There was a TV setup with a video on TLC and its mission, a great scrap book of some of their students and more information on AGHAF and LexLin Gypsy Ranch. TLC Riding Academy was founded in 2006, as a therapeutic horseback riding program for persons with disabilities. Horses are used at TLC to assist with activities that help individuals with physical and emotional challenges. They assist all ages of people from young children to adults in their 80’s. There is a small per hour charge fee for lessons/activities but no one is turned away for their inability to pay! There is no doubt that Cheryl and Tom who own and run the academy do it out of a great love for people and horses.
We look forward to updates from TLC on how Old No. 7 is fitting with all their other horses. Tom and Cheryl have a great facility and we can tell Old No. 7 will be showered with love and affection just by the short time we spent there.
