I have seen what this program does for not only the physically, mentally or emotionally challenged students it serves, but those children's families. I have seen children who had never spoken a coherent word prior to joining the program say "whoa" to a horse; children who could do very little with their hands pick up the reins and "assume control" of a horse; children who initially required support evolve to sitting a horse on their own; and children who responded very little to direction eagerly learning to follow commands. I can only imagine what a huge help that the children learning to better accept direction is to their family members. It became clear to me that these children were many more times engaged in the Savannah Station environment than they would ever be inside four walls of a classroom.
