Ride, Andy, Ride

This summer Andy has had a great opportunity to take Equestrian Therapy, and he loves it!   As one of their youngest riders, Andy rides a pony weekly.   So far he's made friends with Rosey and Barnie.   He also has "Whoa!" and "Back-up Barnie!" down-pat.   

Equest therapy not only provides a "core" workout (because he has to concentrate on balancing the entire time), the movement of the horse mirrors that of a human when walking.   Andy's hips practice fluid walking throughout the lesson.   

Ride, Andy, Ride!
