GUEST OPINION | I can do that

We recently had the opportunity to visit Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center in Woodinville. They had visited our early learning center to see and hear about our work of inclusion in the classroom. Now it was our turn to see their work. The Little Bit website describes therapeutic riding as a place “where miracles happen every day.” The day we visited was no exception.
After a quick tour of the offices where t-shirts are on sale that say “my therapist weights 1,100 lbs,” we went out to the arena. We shivered in the cold as three teenage girls in the adaptive riding program prepared their horses and themselves for a workout. After the girls mounted horses in turn with just the right touch of help and encouragement from the coach, they began walking slow circuits around the arena to warm their horses and to put themselves into the proper state of concentration necessary for the drills ahead.
