I used to have childhood friend who had Down Syndrome (gosh 40 years ago now, now I feel old) anyway he used to go horse riding and he loved it. I think they are such an accomodating. kind and gentle animal that you are able to build an immediate friendship and trust.
Mind you my first experience of a horse bolted and I fell off, as I limped back to my friends rubbing my leg they ignored me and ran off concerned about the horse.
Anyways, I think the horse and rider have a mutual respect or eachother a great calming relationship.
Now today I think of Paul my friend, he was just so lovely. he also loved Andy Williams too when my dad would play his records.
so thanx nice memories.
I do my own research, and find my own answers Its good to talk
