I had the parents of a young girl come to see me at my trade stand, their daughter was severely disabled. We sat her on a pony and her face lit up, just sitting on that pony meant so much to this little girl, but she needed more support due to her disability. I knew then I needed to create something for children with severe disabilities
Following the social media posts regarding the new product, I was approached by Hayley at Your Horse Live. Hayley is mum to Harry, who is quadriplegic cerebral palsy. Horse riding for Harry is vital as it helps with his painful muscle spasms, tight muscles and hip migration,but most of all it makes Harry smile, laugh and have fun.
but holding Harry for Hayley was getting impossible as he grew older. We offered to come to Hayley’s home and see if our new product would benefit Harry
We put our new product on Harry and it was astounding!!! Hayley was able to hold Harry securely in the saddle with little effort and our product gave Harry the support he required to be able to sit up unaided.
This was a great day for everyone
Here is Harry back in the saddle, riding for Harry has so many benefits and our product makes life for Harry and his mum Hayley so much easier
