As a volunteer with a non profit Theraputic Horseback Riding Program we have many riders with Autism Spectrum Disorder and I cannot describe the benefits of horseback riding for these children. They absolutely connect with these giant animals and their personalities shine. They develop a bond that enables them to mature and grow. We have one autistic rider who has even gone on to win 2 national championships! Such an accomplishment! This foundation has generously provided 4 of our riders with a full year riding scholarship! Without this organization, these riders would not be able to ride. What a difference this foundation has made to us, in being able to help these children, and to the familes who could not otherwise afford to bring their children. Thank you for your support!

I am a Board Member representing a Theraputic Handicapped Horseback Riding Program in Central Florida called Stirrups'n Strides Theraputic Horseback Riding Program. We are a registered non-profit 501-3c program and we totally rely on donations to keep our organization going. This year the Autism Spectrum Foundation generously donated enough funds to sponsor 4 of our autistic riders for lessons for the entire season. Without their help these riders would not be able to ride. Our mission is to offer an opportunity for growth and mental and physical development. We hope that their fundraising efforts this year will again allow them to assist us. Please consider donating to this organization so that they may help us and other organizations assis those within the Autism Spectrum.
