Sydney now runs and jumps like her friends

Sydney started in our physical therapy program, called hippotherapy, just two years ago. She was diagnosed with a neurological disorder that that affects her coordination and strength and doctors were unsure how well she would be able to run or walk. For months our physical therapists worked with Sydney using the horse’s movement to engage her muscles. After about a year, she was walking much more smoothly and became able to climb steps, run and jump. Her parents and instructor here are overjoyed. And just this past fall, Sydney was moved up to our therapeutic riding program taking lessons with other kids here age, where she continues to progress. They say Sydney’s experience at Fieldstone has been nothing short of amazing!
