Grace needed physical therapy to improve the range of motion in her neck and back. She started horse back riding therapy sessions to increase her strength and loved them! Grace found riding horses to be relaxing, fun and therapeutic. She expressed that she loved horses and when she is on one, she forgets the true reason why she is there. It's no surprise that Grace wished to have a thoroughbred horse of her own.
In addition to her therapy horse, Make-A-Wish presented Grace with her own custom riding saddle. Through their Stirring Up Wishes campaign, Betty Crocker generously funded Grace’s wish. The Betty Crocker logo was embroidered onto the horse blanket. The horse, blanket and saddle were presented to Grace at the 96th Clovis Rodeo in front of approximately 7,200 attendees!
