Jackson Davis, 5, who suffers from autism sits atop a horse during "hippotherapy" (hippos meaning horse in Greek) at the residence of Alicia and Clint McBryde in Ash Flat. The week-long camp has been offering the horse-riding therapy for three years and became a non-profit organization as of this year. "They connect with the animals in a way that I don't think we can understand," Alicia said.

Having several acquaintances that have children with autism I'd like to say thank you to the McBryde family for providing such a wonderful resource for these very special and precious children!
