Hope Horses Therapeutic riding for special needs students Location: 1301 Convent Rd NE, Cullman For information: (256) 507-4088 or visit hopehorses.org Hope Horses operates throughout the year, with sessions for students Monday through Friday, beginning in the morning and running until late afternoon. “Our horses always have fun with peo- ple; some like the photos and a group, and others like riding just with the student,” Rice says. “We have 39 students each week and a waiting list. They range for 4-and-a- half to 72 years old. “We have access to three arenas and a sensory trail with activities that the hors- es are accustomed to with our students. Everyone stays with one horse for six week, and then they have three more courses for the year. “There is a lot of work that goes into this, but it’s beneficial for everyone.” C Brayden (BB) Butler is right. His healthcare team is among the best in the nation! While practicing a motocross jump, BB fell and suffered a brain bleed. It would take half a year and surgeons, physicians, nurses and therapists to help him recover. Fortunately, for BB and thousands of other children, Children’s of Alabama is ranked among the top hospitals for children by U.S. News & World Report.
