Cedar Creek Therapeutic Riding Center was an early entry into the magic of horse therapy for people of all ages, with all kinds of needs. In this episode, founder Karen Grindler talks about CCTC's beginnings in 1989 with four horses and the present Center with 20 horses and hundreds of volunteers. The Center's work with autistic children, PTSD-stricken veterans, recent amputees and brain-injured persons is well-known nationally and has contributed to discoveries on the benefits of the horse-human bond.
