Meet Dixie

She's tall yet poised
She's strong yet gentle
She's wise yet spirited
She's a perfect pony

Meet Dixie:

Dixie is Landon's newest friend. She is a therapeutic horse that will strengthen Landon's core as well as offering sensory input, confidence, and speech production. As Landon met his new companion last week, his smiled reminded me of that little boy deep within full of joy,happiness, and strength! He did an amazing job and managed to ride in front, sideways, and backwards positions on his first day. We have been blessed to find hippotherapy and I'm so excited to see the relationship between Dixie and Landon blossom! 

(this was the only picture I's the moment where Landon met Dixie:)more pics to come!
