Up and Down Hills

Going up and down hills is great sensory stimulation and I love the hill at the Stone Ridge Farm in Haverhill because we have a nice wide area to repeatedly go up and down. This gives my clients practice going into the half seat position going up and leaning back while going down. This is great for postural control, strengthenging and teaching them to follow and remember directions.  I don't know if you can hear this little girl say "uphill" and "downhill" but she was repeating my words.Maria Hurley owner of   Divinity Farm in Groveland and coordinator of this hippotherapy program is the side walker.
