From kiddo Austin's mom

"Children's TherAplay has done so much for Austin that 'traditional' therapies were not able to do. When we first came to Children's TherAplay ... he didn't know how to move his legs properly or coordinate all the muscles it takes to create a step. In a year's time, Children's TherAplay has taught him how to walk.

"The motion of the horse moving his hips and the core strengthening from holding himself upright on the horse could not have been attained any other way. Today he he able to walk with a gait trainer or by us holding his hands with a little support.

"We owe [Children's TherAplay] so much for expanding our son's quality of life and look forward to his next great strides under the expertise of this wonderful organization, its therapists and its horses."

-- Austin's mom, Jennifer
