Brianna’s Story The Road Back from a Devastating Car Accident

Brianna, now 22 years old, was involved in a tragic automobile accident in October 0f 2012 which left her in a coma for three months.  Her long road to recovery from a traumatic brain injury began in the ICU at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.  She has been surrounded by the most skilled doctors and therapists throughout her recovery process. This past July of 2014, she began equine therapy at Stable Hands.  Horse therapy “exploded” her progress and propelled her to new levels of recovery.  The remarkable difference from when she began equine therapy to present is awe inspiring.  Brianna has always had a love for horses.  Starting at a young age and working all day to ride at a local stable, then getting a horse of her own, to barrel racing through the 4-H program, horses are her passion. We are so fortunate to have a professional staff and team of dedicated volunteers at Stable Hands in our community.  They have the ability to see past disability and promote the possibilities for the participants.  The relentless kindness and encouragement are beyond the imagination.  Stable Hands Equine Therapy Center has been a pivotal part of Brianna’s recovery success.  While she still has a journey ahead of her, there is no doubt that she will make it. Our hearts are filled with gratitude for all those involved with Stable Hands. “Thank you” cannot express the level of our appreciation we have for your program! Brianna, Jody and James J McLaughlin
