CONGRATULATIONS
to our Riders and their Families, to our all volunteer staff and to our wonderful, caring horses!
We had the honor of making memories together!

We saw riders break through all physical, mental and emotional barriers to achieve their greatest dreams!
We had the joy of watching show riders from local barns come out to mentor and help children with special needs.

They worked side-by-side, inspiring each other to reach their personal best.

And I believe these young show riders learned as much, were as inspired, encouraged, and gained a complete new understanding of what Horsemanship means - especially to someone who has even deeper challenges than they do!
NEVER SAY "I CAN'T"
We have had the privilege of playing a small role in helping children thrive and grow!

This little warrior began life with tremendous challenges ...

  • Premature, tiny & weak
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Visual Impairment
  • Non Verbal

(L) We work with the Occupational Therapist to help him find the proper posture to strengthen as he should. What support can we give him?

He couldn't sit up for the entire lesson, so he'd lay back on the horse, still laughing and blowing kisses to show his joy!
And he's still getting movement throughout his little body, increasing circulation, respiration, providing muscle and skeletal movement to encourage his development.














Scroll the photos as he finds the strength to sit on his own - finding his handle to support himself!











Now he rides without us supporting him! He even rides backward to establish better posture, strength and balance!

He's also learning to use his own voice! To tell his horse to walk on!!



Brother doesn't have as many challenges, but he has his own.


This year he found his own voice! He was also non-verbal when he came to us ...

it's such a privilege to hear first words!!!

Now he's commanding his horse with authority!

Walk On, Roanie! Using his own reins and stirrups like a real cowboy!





We are blessed indeed, to share in these life changing moments!!
