Still going strong
“Every day is a bonus when one is 95!” says Val Willis. In December 2014, Val was featured in EQUUS riding a horse named Joy for her 94th birthday (“Where There’s a Will,” Back Page, EQUUS 447).
Last fall, for her 95th birthday, Val not only rode on a horse but also demonstrated some of the Yoga With Horses taught by her friend Susan Allan of Willaway Farm in Almonte, Ontario. (Val and her late daughter Kenra once owned Willaway Farm.) More than 70 people gathered at the Royal Ottawa Golf Club for Val’s birthday party in September.
