Just sharing: In a little over a week, I am starting horse therapy again! I’m sooo excited! Horse therapy is out every summer, & my core gets weaker during those months, so I can’t wait to start back! (It was at the Abilities Convention that I learned how to find horse therapy: I was told to google/look up something like ”professional association of horsemanship international PATH international equine therapy”.)
About 4 years ago, before I started horse therapy, I checked out standing w/c (wheelchairs). It was awful, because I needed re-adjusting once I stood, so not only was it uncomfortable, but I also needed so much help to stand that I lost what little independence I had! Standing felt a chore, & not fun at all!
When I tried the standing chair this summer, it was a 100% different experience! My core was SO much stronger, so there was no re-adjusting needed. If I get a sanding w/c, I could actually use the feature of standing to stand up whenever I want to, & drive around! The idea of a standing w/c actually is fun now!
Horse therapy has also helped with my anxiety & my speech, so I look forward to how another year will help me!
