Connecting 2 Colorado: The Right Step shares the healing power of horses

LITTLETON, Colo. -- Nonprofit The Right Step helps people with special needs benefit from the healing power of horses through a therapeutic riding program.

The group works with riders with autism, cerebral palsy and other challenging conditions.

The program was started as a way to give aging horses a new job but it's helping people find confidence and build strength.

"It's just amazing, it makes your heart explode," volunteer Sheralyn Hefner said.

Colorado’s Own Channel 2 and McDivitt Law Firm donated $500 to the organization.
