Our Story

our-story-cassandraLeaps & Bounds Pediatric Therapy was founded in June 2010 by Cassandra Sanders-Holly PT, DPT, PCS. Cassandra had spent 6 years of her career as a physical therapist in a pediatric setting in Orange County and educating doctor of physical therapy students at the University of Southern California.  She returned home to Norco and noticed a severe lack of specialty pediatric medical services in the area, leaving most families to have to drive over an hour for quality pediatric therapy services, often multiple times per week. As a horsewoman since childhood, she was excited to learn that research evidence is highly supportive of hippotherapy – the use of the horse, in helping children with neuromuscular dysfunction gain postural strength and improved motor skills. As a leader and educator in the field, research evidence is of the utmost importance, and what better place to offer this special therapy than Horsetown USA. She knew it needed to be done! Leaps & Bounds started with Cassandra in a small office, in an office of offices helping just 4 patients in the first 6 months. With Dr. Sanders-Holly’s leadership,  over the past several years, Leaps & Bounds  has grown to a team of the most dedicated and talented therapists in the industry who now collectively served over 250 patients per week. This growth demonstrates the true need for our services for the under served children of the Inland Empire. We have grown by Leaps & Bounds while we help special children do the same!
