Love the children of Winged Spirit Horse. Make all decisions are made in favor of the child, not the center.

Winged SpiritHorse has developed specific methods for treating autism through equine-assisted therapy. These methods have been utilized in over 30,000 sessions with children with autism during the past five years. A study in 2007 - 2008 by the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center showed statistically “Significant Improvement”, the statistical “Gold Standard”, the group of 24 having moved from “severe” to “mild” autism in six months of intervention.
