Good episode? Give it some love!
Ask an Adaptive Riding Instructor is a mini-series answering questions submitted from instructors all over the globe! 

In this episode I answer the Question: " I have a girl who is in a wheelchair and she can wiggle her feet. To get the horse to go I have seen another instructor have the volunteer sidewalkers help her squeeze the horse. My line of thinking is can she [independently] kick the horse physically to move on? It's not something she would naturally do ans she can only wiggle her feet. If I teach this student, would I want to have them do something that they probably won't be doing for themselves? "
