Horse Boy Airs Tuesday, May 11th on PBS9:39 PM
I don't know a parent who wouldn't give up everything to make their child healthy and happy. Horse Boy, a new film, is the story of one family who took their son with autism and brought him into a world of wonder and amazement. How did they do it? With horses.
I wouldn't have believed it if it weren't for this film. Put together by Independent Lens on PBS, it's a story that is often heartbreaking, but allows for healing, too. I know too many parents with autistic children, and I know that they are all looking for peace for their children. This film documents just that journey!
Regardless of where you are at spiritually, this is a film that teaches so much. You have to admire the parents in their committment to their child. The natural scenery is beautiful, and if you like horses, you'll come away with a new appreciation for these inspiring creatures! Based on the book by the same name, it's a touching journey that anyone who has loved a child can appreciate.
