Horse Boy Method
The Horse Boy Method™ was developed by Rupert Isaacson. Rupert is the father of Rowan Isaacson (the Horse Boy). The story of how Rowan opened up to the outside world through an old quarter horse named Betsy is told in the bestselling book and award winning film, both entitled “The Horse Boy”.
Rupert began working with other local children on the spectrum to see if what had worked with Rowan would also work for them. Rupert developed and refined the program over approximately seven years of working with autistic children and horses. During this time, Rupert developed a number of techniques that seemed to bring about better verbal communication with his son.
Since 2009, Rupert has been working internationally with the Horse Boy Method™ at camps and centers in North America and Europe.
Horse Boy Method™ is specific to Autism and neuro-psychiatric conditions. Our Horse Boy™ practitioner graduated from the University of Missouri with a Master of Education degree with an emphasis on learning and instruction and a focus in Autism. In December 2012, she traveled to Elgin, Texas and completed Horse Boy Method 1 with Rupert and his team.
