Hippotherapy

Though the morning was incredibly disappointing, the afternoon today was a joy. Mairead had her first session of hippotherapy at Ironstone Farm in Andover. I was a little anxious about how she might handle getting on a horse for the first time, but I had nothing to worry about since she absolutely loved it. She didn't hesitate for a second and climbed right up to get on the horse. She wasn't afraid at all and she did so well. The therapists and the handlers were laughing because SHE was laughing so much. She followed directions really well and did a great job with the tasks they were giving her. When the therapist told her it was time to be all done, she said, "No, more." It was so fun to watch her having such a good time. Her laughter and smile are truly infectious.

The quality of the video is not great since we were in a dark barn and she was kind of far away from me, but you can see how much fun she is having.
