I've done a fair share of volunteering at therapeutic riding centers, and my aunt is a physical therapist that works part time at a riding center I've helped at. It's really an incredible experience. The children I see come out to ride are just so incredibly excited and show such vibrance and happiness when before they started riding their parents could only describe them as listless. Horses can have such an amazing impact on anyone, but I think it's especially evident in those people that, without horses, would never be looked at the same way as someone else. Horses give them a sense of control and of being, well, whole again.
