James’ story is one of courage and love in his family’s journey to overcome tragedy. After a near-drowning experience in 2014, James parents looked to Bit By Bit to help their son regain control over his 2-year old body. With Bit By Bit’S horses and therapists, James has benefitted from hippotherapy and has learned to nod yes and no, move his head left and right and use his voice to ask his horse to move on. This year’S event will provide scholarship funds to children like James who can be transformed with the help of a horse.
