Unique bonds between horses, children with autism help kids make developmental strides

WINCHESTER - Animals can often make special bonds with children. An autism support group called "Blazing a New Trail" is taking advantage of those bonds to help kids adjust to their challenges.

"Horses were probably the most forgiving animal that were ever created," says Lenelle Scholl, the director of the Scholl Community Impact Group and facilitator of Blazing a New Trail. "They very much bond."

Every little nudge builds a special connection. That connection helps kids on different points of the autism spectrum develop new social skills.
