Oscar is very scared of all animals. Very nervous and anxious. But since September he's been riding at Willow Tree - a local stables that specialises in kids with SEN. They're brilliant. He always has the same horse and the same leader - Charlie - and when he first arrives he's frozen in fear. But Charlie helps him mount up and then he's off and he's beaming - I know Charlie is more in focus than he is but it's hard to capture when he's on the move. Just love the joyful (if fuzzy) look on his face. NEVER thought he'd sit on a horse, let alone get such pleasure. He's starting to let go of the saddle now and use his reins. And it's worth sitting in a freezing shed for 40 minutes every Saturday morning for this....
