Many children with autism spectrum disorder need activity in their lives in order to compensate for sensory issues; so the Brain Builder Program TM gives them this opportunity while promoting group play and providing a fun applied behavior analysis environment.
Horseback riding is perhaps the most popular activity at White Bridle; and children participate in a 30 minute riding session that includes playing learning games on horseback; communicating with adults and other riders during their session; answering questions to promote the development of conversation for those with verbal skills; and yoga on horseback.
All children ride attended by three people - one leading the horse; and 2 side walking to ensure the safety of our clients.
