If Wishes Were Horses… Nova Scotia Girl Has Wish Granted
Jayden Trueman of Upper Stewiache, NS, had her wish come true on Saturday, October 7, 2017.
The Children’s Wish Foundation provided the 12-year-old girl with a dark brown Standardbred gelding – and it turned out to be Bow, the horse she’s been riding for the past year. Trueman is thrilled. She has been riding horses for several years, but was particularly attached to Bow.
Trueman was diagnosed with polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis when she was four years old. The medical condition is characterized by inflammation in five or more joints, and commonly wrists, knees, and joints of the hands and feet. The disease is now under control, and Trueman looks forward to riding and competing with Bow.
The event was organized by the Nova Scotia chapter of the foundation, which grants wishes to Canadian children between the ages of three and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.
