The Story behind Spin Your Wheels

Our sole beneficiary is Riding for the Handicapped of Western PA (RHWPA). RHWPA is a 501-C3 non-profit organization that provides therapeutic horseback riding for children with intellectual and/or physical disabilities in the Pittsburgh area.

The horse's adjustable gait promotes riders to constantly adjust to encourage pelvic motion while improving strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, posture, and mobility.

Approximately 75% of their riders are children living with autism but children with all disabilities are welcome. It is believed the rhythmical gait of a horse acts to move the rider's pelvis in the same rotation and side-to-side movement that occurs when walking. The horse's adjustable gait promotes riders to constantly adjust to encourage pelvic motion while improving strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, posture, and mobility.
