The Hinchinbrook Farm Society is a non-profit organization whose prime objective is to provide a therapeutic horse back riding program to support the physical mental and emotional well-being of persons with disabilities. Its main clients are families with autism.
This is the only facility of the 4 therapeutic riding locations registered with the Nova Scotia Equestrian Federation that provides the unique Horse Boy Method™, developed in the USA by Rupert Isaacson and his son Rowan (the Horse Boy), using very close contact between client and horse, as a partner to bring the autistic child into the exterior world as often these children are very insular and removed from the outside environment.
Watch a video that was produced for United Way. Since it is a couple of years old, the data are not up to date. We now serve more than twice the number of children and families shown in the video statistics.
