Hippotherapy

Did I tell you that Spork got an actual diagnosis of SPD and ADHD?  I'm still learning and researching the ADHD component, but I've found a great support group!  

Fitting that extra piece into Spork's puzzle has made his life and ours much better already.  One of the things we are doing to help meet Spork's needs is hippotherapy, in other words, horseback riding therapy.  We are lucky to have an accredited PATH stable in our hometown, and Spork is loving his lessons so far.  As a teen, I volunteered at 2 different therapeutic stables (then called NARHA) and was blown away at witnessing how children progressed with the magical addition of a horse friend.  Feeling really thankful for the volunteers and donors who make this magic possible.
