Children and Adults with Special Needs Benefit from Horse Therapy

By Cassandra Duvall. CREATED Aug 23, 2014

DE PERE -- Dozens of families gathered in De Pere Saturday, to showcase their talents to friends and family. This is all a part of the Exceptional Equestrians Annual Horse Show, which provides therapy services to children, teens, and adults from throughout northeast Wisconsin with special needs. 

There are 14 therapy horses that help with cognitive, physical, emotional, and social well-being. 
 
"It’s pretty special to have the privilege to be able to organize this. It takes a team, not just me, there's many people involved on many levels,” said Heather Kunzi, Horse Management Organizer.
 
The funds raised will help make therapy services more affordable.
