Carolyn Vaughn from Durham, NC
Run Free

Carolyn Vaughn

On Thursday March 24th resident Carolyn Vaughn from PruittHealth Carolina Point Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Durham was able to relive a lifelong past experience and share her love of horses. Carolyn got her wish to “ride a horse” fulfilled as part of the Second Wind Dreams program and the Pruitt staffs’ commitment to caring. She spent the day with a physical therapist grooming, feeding and enjoying the horses at the North Carolina Therapeutic Riding Center (NCTRC) in Mebane. NCTRC uses Hippotherapy, which means therapy with the aid of a horse. Carolyn recalled the familiar smell of the stable and said “it felt good to get out”. Although Carolyn was not able to ride away on a horse she was overjoyed from the experience saying "it was a dream come true" and hoped Daisy a 25 year old pony would visit PruittHealth. Special thanks to NCTRC and H2Go Transportation. #PruittHealth #NCTRC #H2GO #secondwinddreams
