That's amazing Saddlebag. It's exciting to hear the way in which people and horses have the ability to understand each other. That makes sense aliliz and SlideStop. From what I've been studying, I wonder if its also because the horse, similarly to an autistic person, communicates through body language more so than verbal cues etc. I'm thinking that it must be a combination of different factors that varies dependant upon the severity of Autism and the person. I think someone mentioned before that its not something that works for everyone, but its so good that new therapies like equine therapy are options for parents.
I was also wondering, if any of you were interested, if I sent through a questionnaire, could you or would you fill it out. If not, that's cool, your input has been priceless.
