Apples for Cheyenne

I have discovered this sweet and beautifully illustrated children's book that demonstrates the experience of hippotherapy from the perspective of a girl with autism. Julie fidgets, is willing to look Cheyenne in the eye, is bothered by some sounds but not the sound of the ocean while riding, understands how to make her horse trot, focuses while riding, develops motor control, thinks about her horse's feelings, enjoys touching him  and relaxes while riding.
