Horse therapy improves strength and confidence

OAK RIDGE, MO (KFVS) - A special event was held Saturday for special needs horse riders. It's was the 4th Annual Mississippi Valley Therapeutic Horsemanship Show. 

Special needs riders have few limitations here.  

The horse therapy improves their strength, and also their confidence.

Parents, friends and family came out to the MVTH barn in Oak Ridge to watch the riders show off their skills.

Mississippi Valley relies on volunteers and donations to make this event possible.

They ride regularly throughout the year. The program is always looking for volunteers.
