Dying 87-Year-Old Woman Fulfills Her Last Wish To Ride A Horse One Last Time

An 87-year-old wheelchair-bound Dutch woman with Parkinsons used to be an accomplished horse rider and always had a very special connection with horses. She thought she would never be able to feel the excitement of riding a horse again. But then The ‘Hidden Desires’ Project decided to grant this lady’s final wish of getting on a horse one last time… And her smile says it all (get your tissues ready)!

The woman visited some nice stables, pet some horses and even rode in a bed which rested over the backs of two trotting horses.

This kind deed is part of an initiative that aims to grant the wishes of those who are dependent on care. Bringing someone to their hometown for an ice cream cone, taking a man to a final sports game, or allowing a woman to have a beauty salon day before seeing her grandkids – The ‘Hidden Desires’ Team fulfills every desire, making those who are in need feel extra special.

Really touching stories! I've always claimed that horses are projection of human dreams, power and beauty. They are the symbol of a liberating life & this old woman have certainly entailed that until the very end... It warms my heart <3
