A little boy is finally getting to realize his dream of riding a horse, and his mother couldn’t be more thrilled! Maddox has cerebral palsy, which makes it difficult for him to move or sit up without help. Although he absolutely loves horses, his condition prevented him from getting into a saddle. That is, until now! According to a TikTok post from his mom, Maddox has received an adaptive saddle that allows him to actually go horseback riding. The look on his face is one of pure joy!
