Riders Unlimited

Michael mounting his horse 

When Michael arrived at the stable Thursday he had been sitting in his wheelchair all day. Eager to ride, he mounted his horse Sprite, and took to the show ring. At first when Michael started around the ring he was tense, but as he and Sprite circled the ring Michael became more comfortable and loosened up. The volunteers and the program director, Rebekah Recker, guided Michael through exercises as he rode that helped loosen his body.
