--My autistic son has been in one form of therapy or another since he was 5 years old, so when I told him we were going to start something new he was less than thrilled. From the moment we arrived at North Country RIDE and he saw other kids on the horses he had a smile on his face. To my surprise he was not afraid… he was excited and wanted to participate! Therapeutic riding has been a wonderful addition to his therapy plan. He always wants to know when he is going back.
