Army Sgt. Michael Buccieri conducts arm movements as part of a hippotherapy session at an Olympia, Wash., ranch April 9, 2013. Elisia Mutter, a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH) certified equine instructor and the program manager for Heartbeat Serving Wounded Warriors: Back in the Saddle Warriors, helps control the movement of the horse. Buccieri was wounded during a deployment to Afghanistan in 2011. He has responded positively both physically and emotionally to hippotherapy and recommends it to other wounded warriors as a positive way to get exercise and improve their daily moods.
