Review for GAIT Therapeutic Riding Center, Milford, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter, now 24, started riding at GAIT when she was around 5 years old. She is now 24. She was diagnosed at birth with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and all that goes with it. Flash forward to 3 years ago, when my much adored grandson was diagnosed with Autism and began his GAIT journey. GAIT and it's staff have become family to us and have given our daughter and grandson more than I can ever begin to describe. For my daughter, GAIT has given her a bond with animals that will be with her for life and has developed in her a desire to one day get a job working with animals. During her time riding with GAIT, we saw an increase in her muscle tone, her confidence, her social skills, and her ability to bond with other people and animals. Our grandson, has seen gains in speech, confidence, sensory processing, and social relationships. I can't speak highly enough of GAIT!
