Student from Turrill Elementary participate in ‘horse therapy’

About a dozen special needs students from Turrill Elementary are participating in a horse therapy program at Banbury Cross in Oxford. The students are learning the fundamentals of horseback riding from professional riders. Students have the opportunity to participate in the program in both the spring and fall.

The program, which has demonstrated some positive breakthroughs among non-verbal students, is among the few of its type in Michigan.
