One of Matthews favorite activities is to attend Horsepower. He enjoys interacting with the horses and all the volunteers that assist him riding. He is working on his communication skills using signs and gestures. Some examples are greeting the staff and volunteers, signing for the horse to walk and waving to spectators watching his session. Matthew is very social and has never met a stranger. Horseback Riding also gives him exercise and the opportunity to strengthen muscles as he spends most of his day in a wheelchair. We sure have missed Trixie and our time at Horsepower due to the pandemic and cannot wait until Matthew can return!
