Saddle Up Your Horses

By arhospice on July 16th, 2019 in Blog, Gifts of Kindness

When fourteen year old Savannah was asked for her big wish by her social worker with Arkansas Hospice, she requested a great adventure. She wanted to ride a horse, stay in a nice hotel and make memories with her family and best friend.

Arkansas Hospice Foundation worked with her family and donors to make this wish come true. Along with her parents, her seven year old brother and her best friend, Savannah set out for her great adventure in Branson.

Their first stop was Dogwood Canyon where she rode a horse and was treated like a VIP with a private wildlife tram tour.  Later that night Savanah fell asleep in her nice hotel room at Chateau on the Lake. 

What’s a trip to Branson without attending one the many shows?  Savannah asked to attend a magic show where her little brother could enjoy one of his favorite interests. The next evening, the family continued their equestrian adventure at Dixie Stampede. They all had a big laugh when her little brother was chosen to chase a chicken across the arena. 

Like any two fourteen year old BFFs, the girls chose to commemorate their trip with souvenirs of matching shirts and lip gloss. 

At the end of the trip, if you asked Savannah she would tell you that sharing dreams, laughs, and memories with the ones you love turned out to be the greatest adventure of all.
