Out Of The Wheelchair, And Into The Saddle

Courtesy of Ginger Brown

Usually, Mason Plott is in a wheelchair. But about once a week, he rides a horse at Eagle's Rest Ranch in Flintstone, Georgia, which has a horseback program for kids with disabilities. Riding helps Mason build muscle strength. And it gives him a chance to walk around, way up high. http://archive.org/download/EaglesRestRanchRidingProgram_835/masonhorse.mp3
