“I got a chance a couple of weeks ago to briefly talk to Karin and tell her what a PROFOUND effect therapeutic riding has had for Novee. Not only does Novee feel horses to her core (it frightens me at times how much she loves them), but it has positively affected her core strength, muscle strength, vocabulary, speech quality, and motor planning. If we would've known what just one year of riding would've looked like, we would've never believed it. Goodness, even that first night when we came just to see what vaulting even was and she got on that horse and did things we didn't even think were possible for her. When she started riding a year ago she didn't even have core strength, her hands often didn't work the way she wanted them to, her muscle strength in general was poor, her coordination was inconsistent at best, she had just started using language and was exploring sounds, she was developmentally delayed and she significantly struggled with motor planning. While she struggles with some of these issues to some degree, she has improved so much. 9 months ago she was diagnosed with Developmental Coordination Disorder and Childhood Apraxia of Speech (along with a feeding disorder and a GI disorder) so she'll always need therapy to some degree, but the difference that the therapy she has been so fortunate enough to receive at Legacy Stables we can never express enough gratitude for. So Thank You, to all of you for what you do. My family will always be strong advocates for equine based therapies as we have first hand seen the magic.

Thank you again for everything. It has been a wonderful year of learning and watching such amazing growth. I am still just astounded with the progress Novee has made and the passion she has for horses. She brushes and sits on her toy horse she has affectionately named "Pippa" every day.”

“My special-needs great-nephew, Nathan, has been taking weekly riding and vaulting lessons with Karin for about 12 years. He started when he was five years old and standing with a walker. At first, Nathan would only ride on the horse, with Karin leading and I was walking beside him.

Riding helped Nathan learn to walk. Over the years riding and vaulting strengthened his muscles, raised his self-esteem, helped him with rehab after various surgeries, gave him goals to work towards, and provided a community outside the home where he had a sense of belonging. He has had a lot of fun riding and vaulting at Karin’s stable, and also at occasional competitions that Karin would take her students to. Nathan would win ribbons for his accomplishments at the competitions, which was such a wonderful experience for him. He was the first special needs individual to compete in a national vaulting competition, which will pave the way for others.

Through the years, I’ve seen Karin positively affect the lives of children and adults affected by autism, Down’s Syndrome, chromosome disorders, car accidents, developmental delay, emotional struggles, and many other difficult challenges. Her program has been a life-enhancing experience for many. I am personally very grateful for the help she has given Nathan and others over many years.”
