This page is dedicated to a very special boy and his love for a horse.

In 1997 Jacob Wainwright was born with a rare chromosomal disorder, so rare that doctors could not predict what was ahead. It soon became apparent that he would have intensive medical needs as well as complex physical disabilities that would affect his mobility and communication.

"Jake" has faced a number of surgeries over the years each of which has helped him to progress physically.  Great progress has been made in all areas.
When Jacob and his mom, Amie Taylor, moved to their new home Jake was able to see some of the paddocks of Hidden Acres right from his own backyard. One of the horses, Shooting Stahr (Al) caught his eye. Whenever Jake and Aime came near the paddock Al would be sure to stop what he was doing to come over and visit with Jake. 

Al's owner, Pamela Flagg, and Jake's mom Amie, decided they would like to see if Jake would like to sit on Al. From the first time Jake got on Al it was obvious by

the look on Jake's face that this was going to be something that would continue. The instant bond that was formed between the two of them is beautiful. Jake is so very comfortable and proud when he rides Al. Jake waves to everyone that they ride by. And Al seems to be always aware of the precious cargo that he carries. 

During one of Jake's surgeries he was in the ICU for 4 weeks. During that time he had a picture of him and Al taped to the ceiling. Even being as sick as he was he would wake up for a few minutes, look at the picture and smile.

Jake recently underwent surgery in June of 2007. Once again all he wanted to do was go home and see Al. By the time Jake was well enough to to leave the hospital all the doctors and nurses knew who Al was.

We invite you to stop back and view new photos and updates on Jake.
