The benefits of therapeutic riding and hippotherapy can be numerous and long lasting for children and adults with special needs. The connection that a child or adult with disabilities can make with a horse is evident in therapeutic riding programs all over the country. In this article, the author, who is the Equestrian Center Director at Heartland Ranch and Arena in Ringgold, Georgia, offers readers an interesting point of view--the perspective of a Heartland Ranch horse who participates in helping riders with disabilities make a connection with their world, develop physical strength and social skills, and just have fun.
