I have just started a not-for-profit, where people with disabilities can come out and visit the farm, learn about the horses and how to groom, lead, ride, drive, etc., play with small animals such as a tortoise, rabbit, baby sheep,goats, and just have a fun, relaxing time. It is not therapy, but it is therapeutic in its own right. It is unbelievable how the animals can help these people. We have also rescued a few horses that I have trained to work in the program, one is a blind Belgium mare.

That sounds so cool! I have also thought about starting a therapeutic riding place for disabled children and adults as soon as I get done with school!

I am a disabled rider/veteran from Vietnam that rides at a disabled program, Quantum Leap. I also just rescued my fist TB and he is wonderful. rommel

What a lovely idea! I have a friend who instructs riding for the disabled. They absolutely love it, and it's amazing how many doors are opened. pkrazzle
