Moccasin Stables Therapeutic Riding Lessons
Horseback riding is great exercise and a whole lot of fun. It is also an excellent therapy for addressing key symptoms affiliated with autism: communication and social skills, lowered sensory skills, motor skills, and response to verbal cues and external stimulation. When you ride, you develop a bond with your horse and they become familiar with your movements, attitudes, and emotions, which make them extremely effective in bonding with an autistic child and encouraging communication and interaction.
Autistic children learn to focus on something outside themselves and learn to communicate and interact by responding to verbal cues from the instructor. Those who have attended have seen a great deal of improvement in communication, motor skills and so much more.
