Has Anyone Used Hipptherapy (Horseback Riding) As A Therapy Option For Their ASD Children?

I recently found a Hippotherapy center that is near my parent's home - and being as we are big horse lovers and my son loves animals and being in motion I am really interested in it. Anyone have any experiences with this?

The therapy is much more expensive which is ok, I just am not sure what it will teach her that she doesn't already know about animals/horses. I guess I'm trying to decide if… read more
