Claire's dream of riding her own horse comes true!

Claire, 12, battles Cystic Fibrosis and has had to endure many hours of grueling treatment. During those times, however, she would dream of someday riding on her own horse. She had been taking riding lessons and found such comfort in being on a horse as well as just being in the stables. It helped to take her mind off past and future treatments. So when Make-A-Wish volunteers ask her about her heartfelt wish, she wished for a horse.  Her wish came true and now Claire has her very own horse, Zio, a beautiful Appaloosa gelding. Thanks to Make-A-Wish, Claire has a new purpose and Zio has a very special owner.

During her treatments she would dream of someday riding on her own horse. ”
