Hello, my name is Kylie, I am 12 years old and I have been a rider at Willow Creek Ranch since I was 5. I have Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) and it has caused many difficulties in my life. TSC is when benign tumors grow on different organs of the nervous -system. I have 3 different types of tumors in my brain, some on my kidneys and skin. I have lots of seizures and have to be on lots of medications to help me.
Even though I am 12 years old it is hard for me to do things that many other kids my age can do. Willow Creek Ranch has given me the opportunity to do something super special …I can ride a horse! I can balance, steer, stop, start, and take care of my horse. I have learned to be independent, responsible, and most of all, this program has given me confidence. I am excited about the opportunity to have an indoor arena so I can ride year round. I am so happy to be a part of the Willow Creek Ranch family. A place where miracles happen! Where I can learn, where I am accepted and where I am loved.
