Therapy Horses by Catherine Nichols

Brandon has cerebral palsy. Since he can't walk, he usually gets around in a wheelchair. However, Brandon is taking a break from his wheelchair for Dancer, his new four-legged friend. Riding Dancer is not only fun, it's also therapeutic. The warmth from the animal's body loosens Brandon's tight muscles and strengthens them.

Dancer is one of thousands of therapeutic riding horses. Look inside to learn how these heroic horses are trained and how they help people with emotional and physical disabilities.
