A trio of mini-horses and their handlers warmed many a heart on a cold Valentine’s Day in Maple Ridge.
Julie MacMillan said her drill team, Second Shot, held some mini-parades for local senior’s homes during the pandemic, which were well received, so they opted to go out this Sunday, to brighten what may be a lonely Valentine’s Day for some.
She was joined by Allison Geofroy, Darcey Bessemer, and photographer, Jenny Naylor, as well as mini-horses – Cash, Renegade and Jesse – who were decked out in their finest Valentine’s Day gear.
“Our first stop was at Royal Crescent Gardens seniors home, and after that we visits some of the local businesses,” she said. “We also made a few friends as we walked along.”
While it was the first time the team had toured Maple Ridge for Valentine’s, MacMillan said it won’t be the last.
“Giving back is something we all believe in very strongly,” she added.
“Bringing a few smiles on Valentine’s Day and showing kids the joy of giving is one of the small ways we are doing this.”
