In world first study into the therapeutic benefits of horseback riding for children with cerebral palsy and focuses on three; Lachlan aged eleven, Georgia five and Angus who is just four years old. As we meet the children and their families we understand their hopes and expectations. We explore the scientific team research methods and hypotheses. Will riding really improve the quality of life for children with disabilities? Was Winston Churchill right in saying “there something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of man”.
