Reaping the benefits of therapeutic riding and hippotherapy

It’s good to be back in the saddle.
I thought my horseback-riding days were over due to the progression of Friedreich’s ataxia, until I found Therapeutic Riding of Tucson (TROT) in Arizona.
I’m finishing up my second 12-week session at TROT, and I’ve noticed that — even with having a neuromuscular disease at age 33 — I’ve experienced many benefits from therapeutic riding.
