Day and employment center for adults with autism:

The meeting with the horse and the connection with it gives the child a safe space, where he can act out of desire and joy .The child realizes that he is the one who can “pull the reins in his hands” and determine his future. The children are refrrend by the various welfare offices and youth promotion departments
The encounter with the horses together with the open space community are an opportunity to reconnect with the inner child of us. and to experience the potential of a real individual and a group harmony. The contact dialogue teaches tolook diffrently ourselves and the others
