Meet Our Fall Client of the Quarter: Dylan!

September 23rd, 2016

Meet Dylan! He has been riding at PALS for two years. Dylan’s family was looking for an appropriate activity for an older child living with Autism when they discovered the therapeutic riding program. Since enrolling in programs, Dylan has learned how to help control his horse, and he really enjoys the motion of the trot. His horses, Babe and Scout, are calm and patient with Dylan, as they enjoy walking and trotting around with him in the arena each week!

Dylan’s family notices that he is calmer for days after horseback riding, especially if he has done some trotting. Family members have also observed that his ability to follow directions has improved.

Having Dylan at PALS is certainly fun! When on Scout, he is more vocal, speaking more frequently and offering musical entertainment for his volunteers and instructor. Some of Dylan’s favorite interactions include singing the “Cha-Cha Slide” and watching his instructor dance through the motions. Lately, he enjoys singing “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” while watching his instructor, Lizzie, dance along with him! Dylan is an entertaining pre-teen who just loves to make his team smile and laugh.
