I met with a woman who runs a local 501c3 in my community last night. I had no clue of how therapeutic a horse truly can be. This woman has put her heart and soul into her mission and I highly recommend anyone seeking an alternative or enhancement to their physical therapy sessions to take a look into Therapeutic Horseback Riding.
The owner had shared a concept with me that I hadn’t thought of but it is so true… Horses don’t judge. They treat every rider the same. Wished that society would treat our kids as such.
If you are in the Chicagoland area, please reach out to ReadySetRide.org and ask for Lisa. They are located in Plainfield, IL.
Straight from the horses mouth:
“The barn is a magical place benefiting all who enter including volunteers, care givers, horses, and of course the riders and visitors. Even one day of riding can improve:
*Responsibility and much more.”

Remember, all the folks that are participating in this program are all volunteers and truly depend on donations.
