Autism Events at the Corral

Our Autism Events are Lighthearted and Fun...

CALM

DOWN AND

GET

CENTERED

Horses can play a powerful role in improving our physical and mental health 

One thing to always remember about horses:  They are always positive, and they don’t judge like humans; however, they mirror back the human mood, what you are feeling.  They are the best readers of body language, and you can’t fool them. They don’t lie, and they have no hidden agendas.

Build confidence

Build confidence by taking a mini horse through our obstacle course.  We make our events fun, colorful, and just a really good time.

Every Horse Needs a Job

 

All equine assisted activities are very important for the horses. They thrive on the stimulation of all activities and human interaction.  

Being
around horses changes human brainwaves.

CHANGING LIVES BY ENRICHING HEARTS

Rules at the Corral

SHOES:

 

Protective toe-covered shoes must be worn before entering the corral. Horses can step on your feet.

 

RULES:

 

These four main rules and reasons for the rule must be memorized and repeated to us before you enter our corral, along with your signed agreement form.

 

RULE 1

Never stand behind a horse. Horses cannot see behind them, so they may want to kick to have their space.

 

RULE 2

Horses can step on your feet. Horses cannot see directly under them. Always watch where your feet are when you are around a horse.  And it really hurts if they step on your feet.

 

RULE 3

"Never" put your fingers by a horse’s mouth.  Horses like to eat everything.

 

RULE 4

Never yell or scream near the horse's ears, run quickly at them, or make sudden movements. It startles them. Horses are a fight or flight animal. When a horse is startled or scared, their natural reaction is to run. Always be cautious and considerate of the horse becoming startled.

BE AWARE:

• Horses have four main blind spots: directly in front of them, directly below them, directly above them, or behind them. This is because their eyes are on the sides of their face, not like ours on the front of our faces.  Horses have to move their head if they want to see any of these blind spots. They can do it quickly when you don't expect it, and that action can hurt you. 

 

• Because horses cannot see directly in front of them or behind them, that is why we always approach a horse in a diagonal line and speak softly to them, so they know where we are. 

 

​• Always speak softly to them and touch them softly so they know where you are when you are approaching or near them.
