  1. I use to help out at riding for disable near wear I live in Australia. Recently they have changed their name to horse power & it’s very similar to what to what you do & it’s amazing what the hippotherapy does for these children & adults as well. Keep up the great work. It does makes a big difference.🌹🌹🌹🏆🥇

  2. I have high functioning autism. When I was little I did therapeautic riding. This is now my career path in life! Love your channel!

  3. It’s so nice to see this. I’d like to extend my gratitude to Conor’s parents for allowing him to be filmed for the public’s benefit. I have a Masters in Counseling and would like to have a therapy farm once my own kids are grown. We’re homeschooling now, so time is pretty limited for homesteading and therapy work. I’d love to see some of your work with adults. I have a child with ASD, so I definitely want to work with children, but human trafficking and heroin abuse are big problems in our area, so I’d also like to work with teens and adults in recovery in these situations to assist their reintegration into society. I’d like to do skills/job training with farm chores, and other skills-based instruction as well as therapy work. I had kind of dismissed the dream, but watching your videos has me re-inspired.

  4. beautiful – I have done a lot of riding in the past and one of the places where I rode (mainland Europe) also engaged in therapeutic riding. It was always so inspirational to watch. Horses are superb therapy animals. Good luck!

  5. My son has Dyspraxia and Verbal Dyspraxia and he's just about to start riding with Riding for the Disabled in the UK. He's so excited! I volunteer for them and have been amazed at the transformation in childen, some with very severe disabilities, even after a few lessons. They are visibly (and sometimes audibly) less tense, their bodies loosen, become more flexible, their core strengthens and they become more able to communicate. It's a joy to work with horses, but it's even more rewarding when children with learning, neurological or physical disabilities get so much out of it. Good work!! I will show my son this video.

  6. Why don't we leave children to PLAY and teach them when they are OLD ENOUGH.. like beginning of 14 yrs .. it would shorten the trouble by YEARS !!!

  7. half the problem seems to be people who just don't take the time to emotionally engage with their kids for the kids' benefit. They're in a rush to do what they want to do & just end up stressing out & frustrating the kids.

  8. I always tell people “horses can be therapy animals too!” They look at me like I’m bizarre but you’ve proven my point wonderfully!
    I’m an animal care student and I’m doing some course work on therapy animals and I definitely wanted to include horses !
    Keep up the lovely work !!!

  9. You are so amazing. I'm in tears watching this, just beautiful. It's so difficult for people whose brains work differently to "normal". <3 <3 <3

  10. You are an inspiration to me, someone who loves horses and children. Thank you for these videos, I can't wait for more!
