DOES THERAPEUTIC RIDING HELP? HEAR WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT TROTR!
Due to a stroke at 5 days old, Mia has been through a variety of physical therapies! She started riding at TROTR over 4 years ago when she was 3. Whether riding in a saddle, or bareback, facing forward, sideways, or backwards, going on a trail ride or through an obstacle course, she is always benefiting from her experience.
I love the confidence and ownership in her relationships with the horses. She will always think of the horses as her friends, even though she may not be aware of the full range of benefits she is gaining. MANY MANY THANKS to the volunteers that make sure Mia is safe, while she is stretching or strengthening muscles, balancing on her weaker side, and learning to trust herself as well as the adults and horses. The volunteers make sure when Mia is on a horse...she is successful!
