Children enjoy therapy showcase
July 18, 2018
Therapeutic riding students had the chance to show what they learned during a riding showcase Thursday.
The program called One Stride Closer, a Sweetwater County Board of Cooperative Educational Services equine-assisted therapy program, hosted it's fourth annual riders' showcase.
The program itself started six years ago, according to program director Cindy Brandjord.
The gait of a horse's walk is the closest movement to the way a human walks, Brandjord said. For those with physical disabilities, their hips move with the horse as the horse walks, which is therapeutic for them.
