Standing on horse for first time

This little girl does something new and daring each week. This video shows the first time she stood on top of a horse. Today, she demonstrated good postural control to go up and down steep hills while facing sideways and touching named body parts with one hand. Another postural challenge I like to do is having them give the side walker high fives as they face sideways (facing me) as we walk in circles. Then they have to rotate to reach behind to give the high 5 and this tends to improve their sitting posture. Its also amazing how movement and motivation help this little girl's speech volume and articulation improve during the 30 minute sessions.
