The mission of WALK ON is "to reach out to children on the Autism Spectrum in order to facilitate a change in their lives using therapeutic horseback riding, brain-based music therapy and interactive social engagement.
Willow Wood Ranch, Inc. and the WALK ON program were founded in 2003. Through contact with horses and activity outdoors, peoples' lives can be improved, enhanced to improve the lives of children on the Autism Spectrum through equine-assisted activities and specialized learning methods, and enriched.
Three distinct elements of therapeutic riding include:
- Physical: The three-dimensional motion of the horse provides the rider with hip, back, and trunk action that stimulate natural walking. Body tone, posture, balance, joint mobility, and coordination are just a few elements that horseback riding can strengthen.
- Emotional: Horses provide a noncompetitive setting for learning. Self-confidence and self-esteem are established through self-discipline and improved concentration.
- Social: Horseback riding establishes a positive team-image. Interaction, with both horses and other people, enhance their sense of a team atmosphere and encourage personal improvements.
