Here you can see his therapist, Kim, pushing Matt up the ramp. The other man is James, a local farmer who volunteers there, helping walk beside the horses.
Once he is at the top of the ramp, he holds on to the railing as Kim helps him turn around:
He then swings a leg over and he's officially on:
Friday's visit went really well again. Matt rode for about 35 minutes, then he and Kim worked on standing balance in their gym. We talked to her about adding another day out there and they are going to look at the schedule and see what we can do. Then Matt will have 2 days of therapy here in Des Moines, and 2 days out at Timebercreek. Should be good! I will write more later...we're off to enjoy the afternoon.
