Walking with horses

Today, my daughter and I worked with a horse named Dixie at North Country Ride. The goal is to get Dixie used to people riding her. Then she will be used as a therapy horse for disabled people. Horse-riding is therapeutic for disabled people. Riding causes a person’s muscles to move in the way that they are supposed to. Some mute individuals have even spoken while with horses.
Dixie is a new horse (quarter horse) to the stable. She and her stablemates are from a farm where they were not to human interaction, so accustoming to people is part of the goal.
