Okay, so talking is not a big break-through for her, but talking while riding a horse is!!! Most days she rides in silence and it’s not until she dismounts and the helmet comes off that she will even say a word! This day was different, she talked and talked a lot to her therapist and helpers! We all laughed and said, “well it only took a year….”, but hey, it happened! The catalysis is not clear as to why she talked this time and not the other countless rides, but it’s progress! Rhema still will not do the commands to the horse when prompted, but one step at time, right? She is verbalizing and that is amazing progress for her. Yea Rhema!
