Review for Whispering Manes Therapeutic Riding Center, Miami, FL, USA
Every week, I look forward to seeing Jake at Whispering Manes. He is such a sweet horse! I am unable to ride Jake, but each time I visit the barn I tenderly groom him. I brush him with the rubber curry comb and bristle body brush, bathe him and comb his mane and tail , and then massage his aching joints . Jake waits patiently at the cross ties for me to finish my routine and then the grand finale is giving him a treat which I buy for him out of my own pocket. Just this simple act of caring for an animal brings me such a sense of peace- at least for the hour that I am there. Not only because of the good deed I am doing but because animals like Jake offer you unconditional love, beauty and wisdom that can only come from animals. In his own way Jake thanks me for my small act of love each week, making me feel appreciated and noticed when I usually feel marginalized and /or ignored.
