Neil making great strides with Hippotherapy

Mar 9, 2015 | News & Events


The following update is provided by Neil’s mom, Meg. Neil is a 4 year-old boy who continues to valiantly fight the neuro-developmental disease, MECP2 Duplication Syndrome. Hope Strengthens Foundation is privileged to cover the cost of Neil’s Hippotherapy treatments, which helps develop his speech and core strength.


Neil rocked his PT session today (March 3rd) with Miss Ruth!! Even after being out due to illness, and Mane Stream also closed for a bit to renovate, his core strength while riding Prince was excellent!! It was such a great session!! Mane Stream has now added an indoor therapy room, so if the weather is too cold or hot we no longer need to cancel… so important for the consistency Neil needs in his therapy schedule. Thanks so much to Hope Strengthens Foundation for making proud moments for Neil like this possible!!
