What an awesome Kid Alex is. Such a fantastic personality. Always happy!! Always giving out hugs! Alex began equine therapy at H3 in the Fall of 2012. He has made wonderful progress. It's hard to believe and even remember that in the beginning, Alex didn't like hugs much. Now, I get the best hugs from him at each visit. At times it feels like he could actually squeeze the breath out of me! Lol!! Alex plans to attend the State Special Olympics show this Oct. (2015). I can't wait to see just what he can do. He is already controlling the horse at a walk and trot. Just this year, he began mounting from the ground. (This is a big accomplishment!) He no longer has to use the "buddy stirrups", since he has gotten so tall. We are still working on listening skills, but he is riding better with each visit. I love this kid. When he come to H3, he brightens my day!!
H3 was recently blessed with $5000.00 from Headquarter Nissan out of Columbus, GA. While there one of the salesman gave me some words of encouragement that I would like to share with all of you. He keeps a special poem with him at all times, and makes a point to read it everyday. His 8th grade teacher used to make a different student recite it each day before class. It made an impact on him. I hope you all enjoy it as well.
