  • Our first ever workshop in magical Norway

    Our first ever Horse Boy Method workshop in Norway took place on 1 and 2 September 2018 in Fåvang. The workshop was hosted by our Horse Boy practitioner Emma Helleman at her magical care farm Mattisborgen IPT Gård. She did an amazing job at preparing her farm and horses, Alex and Tindra, for the 6 participants in the workshop.

  • Our trip to the Horse Boy Camps in the UK

    In the summer of 2017 my son, Max and I (a single, self employed mom) received a grant from the Horse Boy Foundation to go on a trip to the UK and visit two centres for a Horse Boy camp: New Leaf Triangle and Equine Learning CIC. A truly great opportunity for Max as well as for me as a Horse Boy Method and Movement Method trainee trainer and an autism parent.
