Farewell to Phil Johnson
“The value of therapeutic horseback riding will always stay with me,” he noted. “So often when a person begins riding at Hearts, what I hear is, ‘I can’t, I can’t, I can’t. But let me put them on a horse and after six weeks I will hear, ‘I can, I can, I can!’ It’s astounding to see such change in the capabilities and attitudes of our riders.”
Phil is passionate about encouraging others to overcome challenges. He has been a great mentor, coach and friend to our riders and volunteers. We will miss his positive attitude and generous spirit. Phil -- come back and visit us soon!
