All our pediatric therapists keep up to date by attending continuing education courses relevant to their field. Therapists work the child and family to provide the best care for their child.

Gracie – I was adopted by Gabby in spring of 2016. I began my training for Hippotherapy in 2016 with my first session in May 2017.

My other hobbies include trail riding, chasing the barn cat and getting massages.
Gus – Hi guys, my name is Gus! I was adopted by Gabby in December of 2017 and have been a vital part of our hippotherapy sessions since March of 2018. Prior to living with Gabby, I was a lesson horse where I worked with numerous children to help them learn to ride. Although I am on the larger side, I have a big soft heart and tend to be picked on by my tiny brother Bo. I love all of my siblings but most of all I love kids, especially when I get hugs, and have been known to give soft kisses.
