"What is the bravest thing you've ever said?" asked the boy.
"Help," said the horse.
Quote from the book The Boy, the mole, the fox and the horse by charlie mackesy
“I really appreciate the Chat 1st walks and the great team of supportive walk organisers. The walk sets me up for the day by helping me to take time out, feel more relaxed, practice mindfulness as well as improving my physical health. It’s a win – win so thank you to Nic, Jayne and Lyn”
