Know of hanicapped or special needs shows in ohio?

My little sister wants to get into showing. She has autism but is very.. highfunctioning. (Would that be the right word? Lol.)
I've never heard of any, but I've never looked around for shows that have classes or is strictly for them. I wouldn't want her to go into any regular classes as she does get frustrated easily. (Ex. Horse doesn't move, horse moves too fast) I hope I put this in the right area. I'm more used to replying on threads, not making them!

Look into the US Para Organization, you might be able to find some answers there.

What part of Ohio are you in. In Cincinnati Winton Woods has a Horses Helping Humans show every October, this coming weekend, as well as hosting Special Olympic events. They do offer special lessons, and even have special saddles! Search the special olympics website, I am sure that there is a program near you.

No problem! Any rider can compete at any level, and there are many fun classes too!
