Children with autism offered horseback riding lessons

September 29, 2009

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- The Franklin County 4-H Therapeutic Riding Center has offered horseback riding lessons to children with autism for more than a year.

The riding center hired an instructor after a generous grant from Summit Endowment.

It has seen improvement in several areas in its riders after the first year.

It is hoping to have a larger group of younger riders ages 3 to 5.

Lessons will be once a week and are in 10-week sessions for a total of 40 weeks. Lessons can be during the day, in the early evening or on Saturday morning. There are scholarships available if needed to offset the cost of the lessons.

For more information, call 717-263-9226.
