Synopsis: “Riding with thisABILITIES” is a documentary film about disabled children empowered through their participation in a therapeutic horse riding program. In the film, we learn what therapeutic horse riding is and how it benefits the children, especially Josue, an eleven year old with cerebral palsy and Zack, a six year old autistic child. In a montage at the end of the film we meet the children as young adults and see how well they’re doing. However, we also learn that the stable is sold and the program ends after their graduation. In spite of the long-term benefits of therapeutic horse riding, the need outweighs the availability even as other programs fill the void. In a epilogue, there’s a plea for us as a society to spend more money on programs like therapeutic riding so that everyone has a chance to “Ride with theirABILITY.”
