Equestrian Excitement

Standard

While I was in the US this summer, a lot was happening here “on the farm.”
One of our very energetic foster mothers wrote a grant which would enable our foster children to participate in a horse-experience.
It was granted!

Initially the children were all pretty nervous.
And the foster parents too, I think.
However, as the weekly visits continued, more and more have been riding.

This week I will be able to go for the first time and see for myself!
In the meantime, here are a few shots from this summer.

  1. I LOVE IT! Hippatherapy really helped Kathryn when she did it-I know I LOVED it as much as she did! The warmth of the horse helps the child relax and stretch their muscles gently yet help them build up strength gradually in their trunk and legs. You can do OT on the horse as well -this is just a fabulous thing for all the kids-I’m so excited for you all!!!
