Review for Naples Equestrian Challenge, Inc., Naples, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Four years ago I carried my three year grandson to the NEC stables. He was observed and accepted as a rider. Zach couldn't walk because his hip socket was not developing with the ball in the socket. His Mother, our daughter, was told that he would need an operation--she chose riding a horse as an alternative. After four years of weekly riding at NEC, Zach is walking with a brace and is able to run. Nec has taught him balance, patience, communication skills and independence. He is able to walk without an operation. Riding has helped him with his speech, listening and concentration skills. Zach not only has special needs he is autistic. This program has helped him overcome many obstacles, without NEC we don't know where Zach would be---it has truly been a miracle that NEC has helped performed
