Healing horses offering therapy

Posted:

A non-for-profit program is offering therapy for those with disabilities.

 

Healing Horses Stables in Pesotum offers therapy for people with a wide range of special needs. Dorey Riegel and her husband Terry Plampin own the stables. They say it is great to watch their riders develop.

 

"I am so happy to be able to share my love for horses with differently abled individuals. A lot of our riders are very quiet or non verbal. And even our non verbal riders can say 'woah' woah 'woah', which is telling the horse to stop."

 

Healing Horses offers therapy to many people with Autism, Cerebral Palsy and veterans suffering from PTSD.
