Trotting

video

Elizabeth has started trotting at her hippotherapy now and of course she loves it. Elizabeth and her instructor (with much of Elizabeth's persuasion) have worked out a plan, if Elizabeth works hard in her session she gets to end with a trot. It is just a brief trot but she squeals with delight when the horse speeds up. Watching her is like watching a rag doll being bounced around as she still has pretty low tone in her trunk but she hangs an with a big grin. She now is doing most of her session holding on the reins which shows how much of an improvement she has made. Elizabeth has tried a couple times to get her horse into a trot when she shouldn't but so far the horse has not been persuaded. Elizabeth is already upping her requests to begin jumping but for now we will keep with trotting.

I'm so glad she likes it. I really wish we could fit it back into our routine (both financially and time-wise). Ride 'em Elizabeth!!

I can see why she asks for more! She does look good - not even comparing to before. I hope she earns more trotting with each session. Barbara

Oh that looks like so much fun. I applied to CARD back in early February for Ashley she is now on the wait list.

Really awesome. I am hoping to get Sebastian into some hippotherapy this summer when we are in the states. It looks like so much fun and so beneficial.
