Monica Wu, who owns Reinbow Therapy, is a Masters level registered and licensed occupational therapist with a specialty in pediatrics in Massachusetts. Monica founded her private Occupational Therapy practice called Reinbow Therapy in 2007 which incorporates equine movement which is known as “hippotherapy” as one of the treatment strategies in combination with other treatment techniques.

As a result of using her professional OT background of evaluating and addressing functional needs while utilizing equine movement, she realized that having a better safety stirrup system was needed and so she created the Reinbow Stirrup System. This safety stirrup system evolved over a period of 10 years and finally received a U.S. patent in February after three years of hard work. She is very excited to share this safety & functional product with the listeners on Horses in the Morning.

If you can’t make the live show, you can find the free recordings here for this show and all the CHA shows we have done for the past years with the Horse Radio Network.
