Carlos Taylor of Winchester, whose legs were paralyzed in a 2005 construction accident, is helped on T-Ball, a Norwegian Fjord horse, by therapist Lisa Harris, to his right. With help from Kassi Smith, left front, Martha Wiedemann and Nancy Herring, right, Taylor will do core strength and stretching exercises as the horse is led around an indoor ring at Central Kentucky Riding for Hope’s facilities at the Kentucky Horse Park. Taylor said exercising along with the horse’s movement has helped his strength, balance and muscle training in the year he has been doing this therapy.
