Hippotherapy makes difference

There are many success stories from Spirit Reins Equine Center near Harrisonburg, but none more dramatic than Eli Terry’s.

“It’s hard to believe that this is the same child that didn’t even make a noise when he laughed just a few years ago and now, well, he won’t shut up,” said mother Heather Terry of Jena. “Anna Borne and the unique hippotherapy she offers made a world of a difference in the life of our child.”

Spirit Reins is a non-profit organization providing speech therapy services both within a traditional clinical setting as well as incorporating hippotherapy as a treatment strategy. It is Central Louisiana’s only equine facility of its kind.
