Two kids did fantastic today standing on top of the horse while stinging donut shapes (flat plastic pieces with holes in the center) on a cord attached to the tack handle. A 2 year old who has downs syndrome actually did a better job sequencing the steps to insert the cord through the donut shape and grasp the cord tip so that the shape falls down- than she has done while sitting on the horse. I think that she realized that I was too busy keeping my hands on her ankle and gait belt to help her use her hands, so she did it all herself. I was very impressed.
