Horse Boy Method is the only equine therapy specifically designed for neuro-cognitive conditions.

That includes: Autism, ADD, ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD and more.

Traditional therapeutic riding is designed for physical disability but not for the brain and nervous system. Therapeutic riding barns are experiencing a tsunami of neuro-cognitive clients.

Add Horse Boy Method to your existing program and you will be at the cutting edge.

Take the first level (Horse Boy Method 1: The basics and running one-family sessions) so that you can get going now.

The online course is even better than a live course because we really have time in the video to show how specific brain games are set up and run, and you see the most holistic use of the horse possible from creating oxytocin in a child's body to stimulating the learning centers of the brain to calming the nervous system. We have spent years putting this online course together to make it the best it an possibly be. It's all here!
