July 2014

Rupert Isaacson, author of ‘The Horse Boy’, a book about his journey with his autistic son through Mongolia, will give a talk on his new book ‘A long ride home’ in Bantry as part of the West Cork Literature Festival – on 11th July at 2.30p.m. in the Maritime Hotel. And the next day, on 12th July at 11 a.m., he will give a demonstration on ‘The Horse Boy Method’ – how horses help people with Autism. This will be a very interesting event for sure, where you can see our two therapy horses from ‘Hairy Henry Therapeutic Riding’ work with Rupert to demonstrate the healing effects horses offer to anyone who falls within the Autism Spectrum. Contact Sandra to find out more: 087 9389867, and look at Rupert’s website for more background
