Hippotherapy, charitable organization helps wounded warriors

Army Sgt. Michael Buccieri grooms Davis, a 6-year-old horse from the Back in the Saddle Warriors hippotherapy program at a ranch in Olympia, Wash., April 9, 2013. Buccieri is recovering from a gunshot wound to the lower back he received during an ambush in Afghanistan. He has been in the hippotherapy program for five weeks and has seen results in his strength and flexibility. He said it is a good alternative to typical rehabilitative therapy because it is fun and also peaceful. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Jennifer Spradlin, 19th Public Affairs Detachment)
