“About a week before we started with Horses for Hope she started crawling but just barely and she was still very weak. She has started moving around so much better and actually crawling from room to room! She has started babbling much more and actually trying to make words and responding to questions even if the answers are not words.
We are so happy we enrolled her and stayed on the waitlist. It is exciting to see her doing something just for her that she loves. While her sisters get to run around in the backyard and at playgrounds she has to watch and when I take her to ride the horses she actually gets to participate and it’s awesome. She laughs the whole time and loves looking at all the trees.
She is still really young to fully appreciate the horses but I am so thankful to be starting her early and giving her the experience that she will continue to grow on. We are lucky to have a place like Horses for Hope b/c I can speak for many parents who are paying for therapy each week, working full-time and trying to fit therapy into our budget and workdays. It was so nice to be able to take her after work and gain so much more than what she gets from a PT or OT office.
I keep telling everyone I know how much stronger she has gotten over the past few months. I am so thrilled that I found out about H for H and hope we can continue to take advantage of this wonderful program!”
