Horses That Heal, Horses For Heroes & Wounded Warriors – an organization worth supporting

MTR

At Commercial Carpets of America and Alexandria Carpet One, we routinely support organizations that do good.
This one, however, is close to my heart as my oldest son benefits from the use of horses in specialized therapy.  
With the rise in the number of children diagnosed with conditions in the autism spectrum, this type of therapy shows promise, but it benefits more than just that segment.
According to Maryland Therapeutic Riding, using horses for therapy is a growing and widely-accepted treatment for rehabilitating a range of physical, mental, and emotional disabilities.
Conditions served include: cerebral palsy, spina bifida, neuromuscular disorders, post-traumatic brain injury, autism, ADHD, and cognitive disorders.
Riders experience increased self-confidence and improvement in strength, balance, coordination, attention span, language and social skills.
As a former Marine who lost friends in the line of duty, I truly believe in supporting those that make it back home in need of help.
Ever seen a Marine cry?
Just watch me next time I’m down on the farm… and those are happy tears, my friend.
I hope you enjoy the following videos and consider supporting these worthwhile causes:

  1. This is terrific. Any organization that helps children or people with disabilities I support fully

  2. As the Founder of Maryland Therapeutic Riding, this just makes me cry! Chris, how wonderful of you to lend your support to our organization in this way! The smile on your son’s face is EXACTLY why we do what we do! And with help from amazing parents, friends, volunteers and supporters like you, we will never stop! Thank you for you kindness! Naomi
