Riding sets Aaron free

“Because I ride at Fieldstone, my heart feels free,” says Aaron, age 23. Aaron’s Asperger’s causes a constant “buzz” in his head. He must continually navigate through faces, noises and other distractions that can be overwhelming. Activities that occupy his mind and command his full attention, such as riding, are essential for his happiness. “Riding horses helps ground Aaron. He needs to put himself in a peaceful place and on Augie (one of our horses), he feels free and at peace,” says Taff, Aaron’s Mom.
