Therapeutic Riding at Cannon Ridge

Kirsten started therapeutic riding in May 2004.  She rides a small horse or pony for 30 minute sessions.  There are several benefits to horseback riding.  It is becoming quite popular as a method of therapy for special need kids.  The main goal is to increase strength and balance in the rider.  For Kirsten, it also provides a good stretch in her thigh muscles.
