Testimonials

“Oh my Lord, what else can I do with my son? Theodore is growing up.” Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  In comes The Saddle Light Center for Therapeutic Horsemanship… Stephanie works with me and Ms. Joyce (Theo’s caregiver) to help Theodore memorize tools for grooming his horse Black Jack…When we would show Theodore the tools he would get so excited … Ms. Joyce and Theodore would play games with the vocabulary.  This experience for Theodore has been awesome. He is excited about going to horse riding therapy…has gained independence by collecting his own supplies and returning to their proper place…has gained the ability to use his louder volume to direct Black Jack and uses his reins for guiding him. He has gained trunk strength and is able to dismount the horse properly.  I had a need for my son to become more independent and reach the next level of learning. Thank you, Stephanie for pushing him to higher ground. Do Not Stop Now, who knows what God has in store for Mr. Theodore.

Dana Anderson, July 2013
