Langley’s equestrian community joined forces to help a young woman from Kelowna through the Make A Wish Foundation at a special event Aug. 10.
Hillary Ansell, an 18-year-old from Kelowna with cystic fibrosis, wished for some horse riding equipment. The place to come was the Horse Capital of B.C. – Langley.
But there were some surprises in store. The first horse power she encountered was a limousine ride.
She received a one-on-one riding lesson with dressage rider and coach Wendy Christoff at the High Point Equestrian Centre and then was off to shop.
Langley saddler Leslie McGill made Ansell a custom saddle as well.
The foundation grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Learn more at www.makeawishbc.ca.
