Our eldest just started taking lessons at Athelas Therapeutic Riding Stable. He had his first session yesterday and loved it. He was up on the horse right away. Apparently he helped lead another horse out to the pasture after his lesson was over. I will have pictures next week, as my husband took shots on his cell. phone and I have no idea how to transfer them.
We are really hoping this will help him with self-confidence as well as poise and a calmer demeanor. Keep your fingers crossed!
