The equine therapy has improved her gross and fine motor skills and socialization.  The program serves as a tremendous asset as Lori feels like she belongs here and is made to feel invited and welcome. She loves this program. It has helped her as an autistic person. It has helped her come out of her box. -A rider's mother

"Emma went from a shaking, terrified child to an independent riding young lady. Her strength, motor skills and sensory issues have improved tremendously over the years. I credit horseback riding for a large amount of how far she has come. She is now volunteering at the Academy to help push others and still enjoys her own lessons.”
