Creating a YES environment is key to a successful playdate and will encourage communication by setting the child
up for success sensorial and emotionally.

We develop the #piaffe with our horses for many reasons. One being, the more collected the horse the more our hips will rock and in that kind of collection creates a massive amount of #oxytocin -the feel good hormone in the riders body. #classicaldressage #stressfreedressage #horseboy #lusitano #velenca #horse #autismawareness

Close body contact and movement of the horse stimulates the release of oxytocin, which is linked to decreased levels of stress and anxiety. www.horseboyworld.com

There are many alternatives to riding a horse. If the child is afraid or worried to get on a big horse, a goat could be the perfect segue into finding the courage to mount something larger. #horseboy #kidsmustmove #goat #autismawareness #autism

Among many things back riding allows the child to find their voice. Horses help the child to create the rhythms that aid in communication. #horseboy #kidsmustmove #horse #texas #autism
