Riders often joke that going hunting is more effective than therapy to escape the stress and pressure of daily life. For 11-year-old Evan Dombrowsky, though, hunting is genuine physical therapy. Born with one hip out of socket, Evan just came through his sixth surgery to manage this condition. His doctors believe horsebackriding places his hips in a beneficial position and contributes to his gradual improvement. In addition to hunting Pete the pony with Loudoun Fairfax Hunt (VA), Evan has faithfully walked hounds out, helped around the kennels, and twice won Best Junior Handler at the Virginia Foxhound Show.
