I am like Lit, she can't walk but she can dance. I can't walk but can ride. it is wonderful, as well as giving you a friend (the horse) it hellps with balance and coordination. I have recently purchased a horse which I have given to the owner of the stables, where he is housed, to work for riding for the disabled. He is wonderful. I contribute to his keep and see him regularly. I also receive weekly updates on him.
