Changing Lives One Ride At A Time
Autism Spectrum Camp
Equine therapy is considered an extremely
successful form of treatment for children with autism.
The rhythmic motion of riding a horse enables the
child to indirectly learn better focusing on the horse
and its riding movement, which is considered
deliberate, slow, and calming.
An animal assisted therapy for autism is a fairly
new technique but equine therapy for autism has
been providing promising results such that many
are considering to consistently utilize therapy
animals in their treatment programs not only for
autism but also for people with Asperger’s
A calming effect of riding accompanies the indirect learning of how to focus better. Excellent results have been reported out of therapy ranch policies. An example is a horse is made to pick the child rather than assigning a child to a horse or a horse to a child. This technique allows a staff of the therapy ranch to guide a child to a horse then observing the horse reaction. A dipping of the head of the horse onto the child will serve as an indication that a bond has been initially established between the horse and the child. This is interpreted as the child’s selection by the horse.
