I found this video and thought it was kinda interesting...I've never heard of this before. I mean, how can they be sure he's actually autistic? Obviously human and horse behavior is very different...The "Benny's story" thing on her website was kinda weird also...comparing his "condition" to infants tethered to their cribs in China? I didn't read all of it, but she explained a lot of his health problems that go beyond his "autism". He has some major issues. Why does she still ride him? He's got a permanent limp that she continually says is a "functional deformity"...but riding around like that is sure to have some consquences doesn't it? Also "his contracted flexor tendons continue to twist and contort his back feet and his back pasterns swell often for many days and the last time my farrier was out he could not trim his feet. This is the second time Benny could not get his back feet trimmed which is very disconcerting. Benny also suffers from digestive issues which cause loose bowel that tends to elude even the best professionals. " If he were my horse I wouldn't be riding him...just my opinion...This whole thing looked kinda weird to me.
