#WTMKids: Saddle Up for Horseback Riding
The connection between a horse and its rider is one filled with trust, understanding, and companionship. Together they put their lives in the hands of someone else. Be an equestrian for the day and possibly ignite a new passion at your local equestrian center. Besides horseback riding being a beautiful way to connect with animals, some centers have therapeutic programming for people with developmental, social, and physical disabilities to help inspire and assist with independence. Please check website for dress code and scheduling.
