Triple H Horse Rescue Camp

Posted: Updated:
"Horses are awesome!" said Harley Mueller.
Harley is a young girl that is in love with horses. This is a love shared by these little ladies visiting Triple H Horse Rescue this week.
They've been here since Monday learning the basics of horse training.
"They've had to figure out how they were going to solve this problem with someone that couldn't speak back with them, and they're all done really good" said Allison Smith, Founder of Triple H Rescue
It's mini horse trainers attending this camp, so its only natural to use miniature horses as well. 
This is an important aspect for Triple H Founder, Allison Smith, when it comes to introducing kids to such powerful animals.
"Its really intimidating to start with this animal that towers over you.   So i think its a real confidence builder."said Smith.
Smith says minis are typically are more social than full size horses, making them easier to work with kids, even if they have no experience.
"The ones that we have in there have never really worked with children because I don't have kids that little anymore so its new for the horses too so it's been good for the kid and the horse.  It's been really exciting." said Smith.
The girls are learning a little more than just how to handle horses though.
"They've had to stop and say okay, what can I do to make this better and I think it will filter down into friendships, we're not getting along, I'm not getting along with my brother, so hmmm, what should I do, what can I do to make this better." said Smith.
Some of the girls even had lessons of their own to teach their pint-sized friends.
"I'm like pretty confident so um they would be confident and they wouldn't be scared" said Harley.
And confidence can make a big difference in anyone, big or small.
