Hippotherapy, charitable organization helps wounded warriors

Army Sgt. Michael Buccieri, Madigan Army Medical Center Warrior Transition Battalion, bonds with Davis, a horse used in the hippotherapy program offered by the Heartbeat Serving Wounded Warriors organization April 9, 2013. Buccieri was wounded while serving as a military policeman in Afghanistan. Working with an occupational therapist from the WTB, the team from Heartbeat and Davis, he said he has noticed a big improvement in both his strength and flexibility. His bond with Davis has also greatly improved his mood. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Jennifer Spradlin, 19th Public Affairs Detachment)
