We are a three dimensional universe, with autism and horses at our center, but radiating out to reflect all sides of kinetic and experiential learning that can be applied to autism, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, anxiety disorders – everything that has to do with the nervous system and the brain.

We have two main wings, Horse Boy Foundation, which offers services to families, usually free of charge, and Horse Boy LLC which offers workshops in Horse Boy Method, Horse Boy Learning (our classroom and homeschool kinetic learning program), Stress Free Dressage for people who want to produce the best therapeutic riding horse they can, and also become the best rider they can be; and offers our affiliate programs in Horse Boy Surfing, Horse Boy Wilderness and other nature and experiential learning approaches.

Horse Boy Method Level1 Workshop at XXXX, on XXXXX XXXX and XXXX from 10am-3pm each day

Come join us and learn the most cutting edge way to work with special needs, horses and nature – Horse Boy Method, aimed at getting communication, and engaging the intellect of people with neuro-sensory conditions. It’s also a lot of fun.

Pioneered by autism dad, horse trainer and bestselling author and filmmaker Rupert Isaacson, Horse Boy Method is open to therapeutic equine professionals wanting to deepen their techniques of working with autism and nervous system/brain conditions such as add, adhd, anxiety, ptsd and more. Horse Boy Method is also open to parents and autism family members wanting more insights into how to use kinetic learning techniques (learning through movement in a natural environment) to better serve their children, and also to riders who want to connect better with their horses – because Horse Boy Method melds natural horsemanship with classical dressage to produce a balanced, safe, soft horse that always tells its rider ‘yes.’

The training is two days, roughly six hours each day with breaks for tea /coffee and lunch.

Day 1 covers the first three stages of Horse Boy Method; setting up the Right Environment, doing the Sensory Work, and learning the basics of Back-Riding – riding with the child, and why this works so much better than leading a child.

Day 2 covers the second three stages; Perspective Taking and Rule Based Games – circus tricks and game establishing what psychologists call ‘Theory of Mind’,; Academics – yes we teach everything up there; maths, French, physics, you name it; and finally Self-Advocacy, the most important psychological survival skill a human being can have – the ability to make a case for yourself.

Come join us at the cutting edge of therapeutic riding, autism/brain understanding and classical riding. Its fun and its easy to learn. Join us on this AMAZING adventure!

THE HORSE BOY – a father’s journey to heal his son?

How far would you travel to heal the one you love?

Join us for an adventure into sheer magic – but magic that is real. When Rupert Isaacson’s son Rowan was diagnosed with autism in 2004, he didn’t know where to turn. But Rowan took himself to the neighbor’s quarter horse mare, Betsy, and forged a bond so tight, that he began speaking as soon as Rupert – a lifelong horseman – placed Rowan on Besty’s back.

That same year Rupert, also a human rights activists for African tribes, had to bring a delegation of African tribesmen to the United Nations to appeal against illegal eviction from their ancestral land. Some of the members of the delegation were trained healers in their culture and worked on Rowan. The results were as amazing as withBetsy. So Rupert asked himself; where is there a place on the planet that combined horses with this kind of healing? The answer? Mongolia.

As Rupert says: “This is not a story about the tragedy of autism. This is a story of how we did something crazy. Went halfway round the world in search of a miracle.”

Come see what happened on that epic quest for healing. The Horse Boy has won multiple awards from film festivals, has been screened in cinemas and television internationally, and is one of the most inspiring stories of love between a father and son, and the magic of horses, nature and family, that you will ever witness.
