Being engaged and developing skills helps adults with Autism

This new study, conducted by Vanderbilt University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, found the degree of independence in vocational activities improved many areas, including decreasing autistic behaviors and improving daily living activities.

We work with children, some as young as 4, teens and even adults, on the autsim spectrum. We have found and, our client’s families have shared with us, that being involved in the unique activities of caring for and riding a horse has a really positive impact on the client.

Our sessions are one-on-one and based on each client’s abilities and goals. All clients learn to lead, groom and ride their horse. They may also play games with the horses and learn about horse and herd behavior. Clients are encouraged to communicate to the level they are capable of and we usually see a lot of growth in this area.

If you know a child, teen or even an adult on the autism spectrum who might benefit from working with horses, give us a call or send us an email to schedule a visit. We will show you around, introduce our wonderful horses, learn more about the challenges you are dealing with and share how we might be able to help.
