"Neil has been riding with Mesa Vista since September '05...I can't believe it's been 4 years! .... Neil is a 7 and a half year old boy with beautiful blue eyes, strawberry blonde hair, a terrific smile and a goofy sense of humor. He also happens to have Down Syndrom, an autism spectrum disorder and sensory processing challenges. ... Since Neil's been riding, his therapists at school and in private practice ... have remarked on how much his core muscle tone and strength has improved.........

"Derik has been diagnosed with ADHD, Asperger's and Sensory Processing Disorder. Riding is starting to increase his stamina and ability to do something for more than a few minutes. His self-confidence has increased and his ability to interact with other people. MVT has also been a great place to practice his social skills."

"Wyatt will never be a loud person and riding is helping him develop strong self-esteem along with a voice. We saw progress from the first lesson and he continues to develop every time he has a riding lesson. For example, learning the 'click' for 'let's go' seems so simple, but it took encouragement for him to develop confidence in his voice to do it. There is nothing better for building self-esteem than sitting alone on top of a horse with the confidence to click 'let's go'."
