Getting in Motion

During Shane's riding lesson today we flipped him like a pancake (which he thinks is just too funny) from his back to his belly. Usually he just works on lifting his head up and moving it side to side but today, he was kicking his legs back and forth and he was using his arms to push himself up to flip his head around. It was the first time I've seen him do that on his horse! It was amazing! He was so motivated today and he was talking and smiling and just a very happy boy!

Valentine's Day Treat

Happy Valentines Day everyone! Shane came to his therapeutic horseback riding lesson all ready to work! And he might have had a couple of valentine's to give out to his fan club as well... What a little gentleman. He got to ride Tobi today and did great! I think he was excited to work with Miss Pam again since they haven't worked together in a while. He did a really good job holding up his head. He even got to do a new trick! He sat up on Tobi but was facing backwards! It works different muscles so that was really cool. He even went into his froggy position no problem. He practically scooted his little legs up there all by himself! He was just showing off, as usual :)
