Eponalia Eve

Tomorrow is Eponalia.  This last year I have been blessed with lots of contact with ponies and horses including riding lessons.  Learning to ride horses has been a dream of mine since I was a child and for various reasons it has taken me until this last year to finally start fulfilling that dream.  It’s everything I could have imagined and more.  My heart swells with joy during each lesson I have and I feel so very, very lucky to have this opportunity.

This wonderful blessing in my life has come about because I lost my job and started to do some voluntary work with the Riding for the Disabled Association Glasgow.  You don’t need any prior experience to volunteer with them as they teach you all you need to know.  Thanks to them I know how to muck out, sweep a yard, lead a horse or pony, groom a horse or pony, tack-up (I’m still not very confident on that bit), remove tack and side-walk for others that have lessons.  I’m also having riding lessons there on Dillon.  Dillon, like all the RDA horses and ponies,  is a gentle soul. He prefers the lazy life, he can move more swiftly if he feels inclined but he’s not one of the brisker paced horses in the RDA yard.  I think he’s perfect for me!

This Eponalia as well as my prayers I intend to visit the stables for a bit.  Lessons there have finished until the new year but there will still be mucking out to be done and maybe some grooming.  In past years I didn’t have these opportunities and I am truly grateful.  Loosing my job was a very difficult time for me but it turns out to have opened the door for wonderful blessings.

May Epona guide you to the blessings you need most in your life whatever they are.

  1. May you know the rich blessing and treasures of Eponalia. My youngest stepdaugther lives and works a yard in Wiltshire. I sent her holiday gift to be opened on Eponalia. I looked up Dillon’s photo, he is very handsome. I am so happy that you are having this opportunity to be with, work with and learning horses. Sometimes the hardest experiences open up the most amazing paths. Enjoy.
