CHARLESTON AREA THERAPEUTIC RIDING INC
June 28, 2011

My son Jackson is 7 years old and has been riding with CATR for about 3 years. Jackson has Autism and communication has always been a weakness for him. Seeing my son interact with "Charlie" as well as Dee (his instructor) and the volunteers has been an amazing experience. He has a connection with these horses and these people that I don't see very often, and I am so thankful for all they have done for my son. His language is exploding, his core strength and balance are improving, and he even has a special song he sings to "his" horse at the beginning and end of each session, and that in and of itself is fantastic since he can speak very little. My heart felt love and appreciation goes out to everyone at CATR for all that they give, and all that they do.
