Rowan, a five-year-old autistic child, riding a horse, accompanied by his parents, Kristin Neff and Rupert Issacson, during a horseback expedition across Mongolia. Rowan, who has been nicknamed ^The Horse Boy^, embarked on a therapeutic journey of discovery with his parents to visit a succession of shaman healers in one of the most remote regions in the world. Following Rowan's positive response to a neighbour's horse, Betsy, and some reaction to treatment by healers, Rowan's parents hoped that the Mongolian shamanistic rituals along the route and the prolonged contact with horses would help to unlock their son's autism and assist his development. The story of Rowan's therapy has been made into a film, ^The Horse Boy^, due for release in the autumn of 2009.
