    1. I read this book to learn more about Therapeutic Horseback Riding for a project in one of my classes. It explained a lot in terms of what Therapeutic Horseback Riding encompasses, the people involved, the tasks that are undertaken, and even stories on several children who benefited from the therapy. They were really inspiring and I'm really excited to be working on a project that involves this type of therapy! :D

    2. There's definitely a lot of good information in this book. It explains in detail what a typical therapeutic riding session will look like and has interviews/profiles of riders with different disabilities. I'm definitely keeping this as a resource for my centre.

    3. Very informativeLoved the interviews with families and riders. Gives a great view of how equine e therapy really has an impact on the rider in a more holistic view.

    4. A freind of mine son (Nick) is a special needs child. I went to Naomi Scott book signing and bought the book. His story is Chapter 27. He also signed my book. Amazing kid and mother.
