Boy And Miniature Horse Bond Over Shared Disability

| Filed under: InspirationHealthCuteness!Horses

A young boy and a miniature horse bonded over their mutual disability!

Awwww! That's so insanely cute!

Tyler Cribbs is a young boy with a disability.

He needs to use braces to be able to stand and walk around.

Tyler has found a friend and some common ground in Judd, a miniature horse born at the Capital Area Therapeutic Riding Association (CATRA) in Grantville, PA.

The two month old horsie sadly has a condition similar to Tyler's that causes him to need splints to support his own weight.

The association normally offers horseback riding as therapy for patients with disabilities, but it's different with lil Judd.

CATRA said:

"It's our turn to give therapy back. There are horses who have had this in the past and recovered normally. We're sort of a wait and see."

Judd is undergoing physical therapy and inspiring local children who also need splints to stand.

Tyler's mom said:

"[Judd] uses them the same way Tyler uses them to strengthen his legs. For Tyler to have an animal that is akin to him, it helps him want to do better because he sees the animal strengthened by the braces."

That's so ahmayzing! What an inspiring story!!
