Rider Testimonials
Becki has been riding at MVTH for 12 years. We have seen vast improvements in posture and using her right hand to steer the horse. Her startle reflex issues have decreased. Horse therapy is Becki's favorite activity. Its fun and great exercise!


When I first came to MVTH I was skeptical of how much good it would do. Diagnosed with MS in 1999, I had spent over ten years in a wheelchair. After two and a half years with MVTH I have improved tremendously, thanks to therapy and response to new medical treatments. The teachers and volunteers are great at making you feel at ease and providing a fun but challenging program tailored to the student's individual needs regardless of age and ability.  [David]
