This past December, the Mississippi River flooded, forcing staff at Ride On St. Louis, a nonprofit using therapy horses to assist children and adults with disabilities as well as veterans and disadvantaged youth, to evacuate their horses.
This past Wednesday, the therapy horses were able to return.
Even though everything is fixed, the Ride On St. Louis program director is considering a permanent move in case there’s another flood.
