New Member Rose Goldstein
Rose has been a member of Western Colorado Equine club for 5 years! She joined a few years after the loss of her husband of 25 years. Rose is very open about her tragedy and how it lead her to several years of depression.
Rose has overcome her depression and is retired but she spends a lot of time with her 10 grandchildren. Rose was always interested in equestrian work (and actually worked with an equine vet in her 20’s!) but didn’t spend much time with horses.
Rose says, “I always loved horses and don’t really know why I didn’t pursue that passion the last several years before my husband died. Other things just took priority. But when I love my husband I knew I had to find other things to occupy my time. After years of depression, I volunteered with a non-profit that provides therapy horses to mentally disabled young adults. The reality was, I was the one getting therapy from these horses!”
At that point, Rose says, she knew she had to be more involved and she joined the Western Colorado Equine Club. Rose says the club was a great way for her to meet new people and stay connected with younger generations.
Rose still volunteers for that same horse therapy group.
