The Foal Project

Raising Awareness and Funding for Equine Assisted Therapies

I saw a child who couldn't walk,

 Sit on a horse, laugh and talk.

 Then ride through a field of daisies

 and yet, he couldn't walk unaided.

 I saw a child, no legs below,

 sit on a horse and make it go

 through woods of green

 and places he had never been

 to sit and stare, except from a chair.

 I saw a child who couldn't crawl

 mount a horse and sit up tall.

 Put it through degrees of paces

 and laugh at the wonder in our faces.

 I saw a child born into strife,

 Take up and hold the reins of life

 and that same child, I heard him say

 Thank God for showing me the way...
