Claudine Pelletier-Milet is a horseback riding instructor and an educator who specializes in equitherapeutic riding for toddlers. She runs the equestrian center of the stud-Mairin Berdrix La Chapelle-Montligeon in Perche, France. Catherine Mathelin-Vanier is a psychoanalyst who specializes in early childhood. She is a doctor of psychology and a research associate at the Center for Psychoanalysis and Medicine at the University of Paris 7-Diderot.

Taking on a group of developmental disorders whose prevalence rate is increasing each year, the ideas in this book show those with autism to gradually open up within a joyful and relaxed atmosphere. The study draws from a strong knowledge base of equine training, child psychoanalysis, and clinical psychology, contending that certain animals?specifically horses?have a way of communicating with individuals on the autism spectrum. The process of learning to ride is presented as a unique educational system, inviting the autistic individual to discover new sensations, gain a sense of independence, and learn to control their emotions and fears. Addressing the emotional needs of family and friends of those with autism, this emboldening guide encourages those on the spectrum to look up, speak out, and become stronger in mind and spirit.
