Seminole nonprofit uses horses to help those with disabilities gain independence, strength

In Seminole, there's a nonprofit dedicated to changing the lives of those with disabilities. Horses for Handicapped Foundation has been in the community for more than 40 years. "We are a free therapeutic riding program for Special Needs participants in Pinellas County. We provide recreational horseback riding that often culminates for our Special Olympians in Equestrian showing. We also foster civic responsibility, youth development, through our collaboration and symbiotic relationship that we have with 4-H and Girl Scouts," explained Leah Frohnerath, Board President at Horses for Handicapped Foundation.
