This year, Horses Help built a program for Gateway Academy, a wonderful charter school specializing in Aspergers Syndrome students. This program was conducted for 15 weeks giving their students an introduction in equine nutrition, language, physiology and anatomy, breed distinction, care and maintenance and of course riding skills. The program is implemented by our Program Director.
