Therapeutic Horseback Riding : Mentally Challenged Horseback Rider Case Study

Hi, my name is Connie and we’re here at Hearts
Adaptive Riding Center in Santa Barbara, California and I’m here for Expert Village. I’ve been
riding here five horse shows. And before I came, and before the horses came I’ve been
here nine years. I fell in love with the horses. I’ve been coming. What’s your favorite part
about coming out here? Easy Lift. Oh easy lift, that’s not your favorite. Easy lift
comes out and picks me up. But what’s your favorite part about riding here? My favorite
part is riding horseback. Oh and who’s that? Is that Sunny? Sunny, yeah. Is Sunny your
favorite? Sunny is my favorite. I won’t tell the other horses Louise. Who is your second
favorite horse? Sunny! Your second favorite, Hershey! Hershey, oh, Hershey is a champ out
here! Hershey is a champ, yeah. Alright. I just love Hearts!
