Sisters share love of horses
Kylie always wanted to ride a horse. Her dream came true at Fieldstone Farm with the help of A Special Wish Foundation, an organization that grants requests to children with life-threatening disorders.
She began riding at the beginning of 2021 with her younger sister, Kaitlyn. Both girls instantly found friends in our therapy horses.
