"I'm lying in bed a little freaked out right now. We went out to Horse Boy again tonight. Phoenix did great and went right to the horse and rode two times, which is way more than last time. The people were really focusing on numbers and counting and addition as he rode around. I don't know if they did that on purpose, or if they were just making conversation by counting toys and people as they walked... but just small numbers up to 5 or so. I didn't think much of it, but tonight as Phoenix was going to sleep, I heard him whispering to himself "9&1, 9&1, 9&1 is 10... 16. 16 is 9 & 7" I've never even heard him count past 10, much less add anything at all. I can't wrap my head around how crazy this is... he's 3. Maybe it's late and I'm making a bigger deal out of this than it is. I'm still freaked out by it though."

The Horse Boy Method is not intended or offered as a cure for autism. Ameliorative effects may or may not occur. The method was found to be very useful with Rupert's son Rowan and with other children subsequently. We simply follow what worked for Rowan and others but there is no guarantee of outcome.
By participating in a Horse Boy Method session or training or applying them at home you accept full personal responsibility for any injury or death that can follow any equine activity. The Horse Boy Foundation accepts no liability.
Just as a reminder… The Horse Boy Method Training is an intro into the methods including but not limited to back-riding. We do NOT suggest that you go home and start back-riding with children. Practice, practice, practice! Seek professional advice from your trainers to deepen your skills as a rider and horseman/woman. Take lessons! Again, after the training you are probably NOT ready to ride with a child. Practice until you, your horses and your property are ready for back-riding! HORSE BOY LLC, IT’S MEMBERS, OFFICERS, TRAINERS ETC ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY INJURY, DEATH OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY YOU BACKRIDING WITH A CHILD OR OTHER PERSON.
We do suggest you and anybody you work with wears protective gear like protective riding helmets etc.
