We met Ryan in the Special Education Department at New Braunfels ISD. Unfortunately, Ryan was not able to ride; however, we accommodated. Ryan worked with the Limitless Miniature horses and absolutely loved them. Ryan was one of our students with Down Syndrome. He learned to use his fine motor skills through using the different types of brushes as well as buckling halters. He was able to use his words and learn new vocabulary through repetition and learning different aspects of horse care. Ryan learned to be tender and loving towards the animals which later translated into his everyday life. his time with Limitless, Ryan not only built up physical endurance through leading and walking with the horses; but his mental capacity grew and developed even more. Unfortunately, Ryan had many health issues and died in his home. His family is a major staple in our program.
