When the words Spina Bifida were said during our 20-week ultrasound we were in shock. We did not know what this would entail for our life and our family going forward. We were told that due to the severity of our baby’s condition she would most likely need a wheelchair. At that moment, an activity such as horseback riding seemed completely out of the picture….. Five years later, she is her best self at Lovelane. She is outgoing and confident. She feels supported and cared for by the staff. Her medical team has credited her riding at Lovelane to helping her recover from surgery, gaining strength and improving her balance. As her parents, the smile on her face when she rides would have been enough.
