People are increasingly aware of the benefits of using ponies for all kinds of therapy. Although our focus is often on the physical benefits using horses, our clients also get the exposed to all the other benefits too:) https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10154225298456069&id=120155736068
We had some great hippotherapy sessions yesterday. Thought you might all like to have a peek at what it's all about. Please share this to spread the word:)
We are now well under way with weekly hippotherapy sessions. Both children seem to be enjoying themselves and work really hard at each session, and out lovely volunteers are doing an amazing job supporting the sessions. Watch out for more sessions starting in a few weeks time. Here are some photos of this weeks sessions so you can see what we get up to in the sessions.
We got to use Sarenson the mechanical horse for our session last week at the Black Horse Shop.

Big day today. Today is the first day of the business going live:) I am going to be doing some volunteer training and some new assessments!
We had some training with the ponies and some children using all the different positions the ponies may experience during the hippotherapy sessions. Both ponies did amazingly:) thanks to Claire and the girls for helping out:)
Having a practice ride on Sarenson, the mechanical horse at the Black horse Saddlery Shop.
And here is 'Magic' being assessed
It all began with a conformation and movement assessment of the ponies we will be using for hippotherapy. Here we are looking at the movement 'Chief' might give a rider.
Over the next few posts I thought I could share some of the journey of what has been happening in preparation for our first clients next week.
