At age 3, our son Mark was diagnosed with autism and nonverbal. His therapists said we should have him learn sign language so we could communicate better with him. Mark didn't care for signing and continued with gestures and pointing. At age 5, Horsepower came into his life and after his first lesson, Mark talked - actually talked about when he would come back and ride Star. That event is one of the most my joyous moments in my life. Mark is now 23 and has been in the program for 18 years. Today, Mark talks about his Fred (the horse he rides at Horsepower) on a daily basis and I'm always happy to listen to him talk about his Fred.
HorsePower is a program that allows disabled people to have fun on a horse while strengthen their body. I want to someday be able to walk and this program is allowing me to push myself to be able to walk.
Thank you for your support Jess! You are awesome! Keep up the hard work! :)
