“I wanted to let you know that although every minute of the 4 day training was for me, extremely meaningful and valuable, the relationship between the pelvis of the horse and the human, stands out as the crux of hippotherapy.  I’ve begun to share it, and will continue to share it with my horse handlers/ volunteers/ and parents, etc. as it really drives home how the horse transfers his movement to the client.”
