The Horse Boy Trailer - Working with Autism using animals
The Horse Boy does more than chronicle Rowan and his parents' journey across the vast, wild landscape of Mongolia. It delves into the strange world of autism itself, the relationship between humans and animals and between different cultures and different ways of being (autistic vs. normal, or "neuro-typical"), and the nature of healing. But above all, The Horse Boy tells the story of a couple that goes to the end of the earth to find a way into their son's life.
Gillian Naysmith has been asked by Author/Director, Rupert Isaacson to screen his movie 'The Horse Boy' about his Autistic Son, Rowan and his incredible relationship with horses and the families amazing adventure, as a fundraising event to raise funds for his new charity The Horse Boy Foundation UK.
This charity will help fund places for families of Autistic children to attend Horse Boy Camps throughout the UK. Gillian went to the Scottish camp in January and says it was incredible. Details of her son's progress can be found on the news page the website - www.gilliannaysmith.com
Tickets to the film being shown at Bells Distillery, Pitlochry in Scotland on Wednesday 4th August at 7pm are £5.50 and are available by contacting Gillian on - firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07934628326.
