Some very special area children put on a horse show as part of the "GREAT" program this morning.
Camp victory finished up it's second week of activities in Greenwood.
A division of the Arc Caddo - Bossier, Camp Victory has used equine therapy to help develop skills in children and adults with special needs for the past 12 years.
"GREAT" works with Caddo Parish schools adaptive physical education program, as well as Shriner's Hospital, and serves students from seven parishes in north Louisiana.
Camp leaders say the kids and horses form a special bond during the camp.
"It's something that they don't feel like they can't do because I have a challenge. I can do anything anyone else can do. And so that really kind of carries over into their daily lives as well," says camp instructor Linda Hamm.
Hamm says the camp is always in need of volunteers and donated horses.
"GREAT" runs the only North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA) member center in north Louisiana.
The program has 16 therapy horses, 3 NARHA certified instructors and over 30 trained volunteers.
