Hope for an entire family. One step at a time. Their three children are Physically and mentally challenged. Yet they always arrive for their hippotherapy session smiling and full of happiness that their children show interest, and are enjoying their therapy on my horses. I can't begin to imagine what their daily struggles to make a 'normal' life for their family must be like. Yet through their religous beliefs, they seem very excepting, of the long road, on the journey of life, that God has planned for them

The main reason our hippotherapy program is such a success? The children love participating.

Laughter is like sunshine....

A laugh is just like sunshine
It freshens all the day,
It tips the peak of life with light,
And drives the clouds away.
The soul grows glad that hears it
And feels its courage strong.
A laugh is just like sunshine
For cheering folks along.
A laugh is just like music.
It lingers in the heart,
And where its melody is heard
The ills of life depart;
Happy thoughts come crowding
Its joyful notes to greet-
A laugh is just like music
For making living sweet.
