LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A horse show that is full of tradition added a new one to the list Thursday.
For the first time children who take part in the Upside Therapeutic Riding Program at Rock Creek got to ride in the Rock Creek Horse Show.
"We felt like we just won the Olympics. We felt like this was it. The golden ticket," said Cindy Jury, whose child was riding in the show.
Kim Wheatley-Alexander who founded Upside said taking part in the Rock Creek Horse Show is a big deal. She discovered with her own daughter who has special needs that horses have magical powers.
Mother Susan Hovekamp agreed. "Special connection, such a bond. Unlike anything I've ever seen," she said.
Time on these special horses builds core strength, confidence and even verbal skills.
Nancy Meiers said her 6-year-old daughter Ella, who rode in the show, didn't speak three years ago.
"She started babbling the very first day she got on a horse, started singing," she said.
Thursday night was a true blue ribbon moment filled with several emotions.
"Seeing kids go around and get blue ribbon. See expression. Priceless. Absolutely priceless," said David Mount, the President of the Rock Creek Riding Club.
