Recreation Snapshot


After undergoing major surgery on her back Jasmine was unable to sit up without assistance. Her mother, Dozine, said that Jasmine had no back support. She immediately began to research alternative therapy to improve her daughter’s mobility. She came across information on equestrian therapy and the many benefits children with various back injuries had received. Unfortunately, Jasmine’s mother couldn’t find a place that would accommodate Jasmine’s specific needs. That was until she attended an event at ARC where she met a member of Melwood’s equestrian staff. Within a month Jasmine was enrolled in Melwood’s program. Jasmine’s mother says that her daughter is now more independent as a result of her participation in the program.
