Review for LOVING THUNDER THERAPEUTIC RIDING INC, Rio Rancho, NM, USA
My daughter has been learning how to ride a horse at Loving Thunder Therapeutic Riding for several years. Although she is autistic and very delayed she has blossomed over the past years. The wonderful volunteers help her to do all the activities of grooming and getting the horses ready to ride. She is improving her fine motor skills and building essential muscles every day. Don't get me wrong, they don't do it for her, they make her do the work, but help by doing the things she is not able to accomplish. She is now learning how to turn her horse thru the patterns, stopping and backing up. The horses are so patient and calmly stand while she finishes her duties. She will probably never be able to ride with out the assistance of someone, but the joy on her face when she rides will forever be etched in my brain. Thank you Loving Thunder for making my daughter feel like a rodeo queen each time she rides.
