Introduction  -A thanks that arrives far  
An ancient Cambodian proverb says: “
The im-mature rice stalk stands erect, while the ma-ture stalk, heavy with grain, bends over.
” Thisis an invitation to live simply, to abandon our presumption and to bend over, listening to theothers. Only in this way we will be able to pro-duce great results.In 2010 our projects grew and we have achievedsome important results.2.500 farmers took part in the agricultural trainingorganized in Cambodia, creating more than 200model farms in 140 villages. As many farmers inMyanmar attended the trainingson cultivation and transforma-tion of agricultural products andvisited the 2 model farms in theCountry. Some cooperatives of farmers have been created,among which we remember thepassionate “Tomato group”,that is experimenting the culti-vation of the tomatoes in themountains regions of Myanmar.Moreover, 95 disables in Cam-bodia obtained great improve-ments thanks to the activityorganized in the CommunityRehabilitation Centres andmore than 200 disabled chil-dren benefited from phisyother-apy sessions and gave their best at school. 400 Cambodian families decidedto send their children to NH kindergartens, recog-nizing the importance of early childhood educa-tion in order to enhance the entrance in primaryschools, and dedicating their free time to help theteachers.We want to thank all of them. Thanks to their determination and their passion we find the moti-vation that enables us to renovate our commit-ment.And we also want to thank all the people whowork to make it possible. All the special needteachers of the CBR centres, whochallenge prejudices and helpdisabled children to affirm their dignity. And all the teachers, al-ways eager to learn. An all themembers of NH staff, Cambodianand Burmese, who smiling saythat “NH is like a family”. We wantto thank the enthusiasm withwhich they welcomed Julia, thenew Country Director in Myanmar,and the passion that transformedthe annual evaluation held inPhnom Penh into a moment of real joy.And obviously, we also want tothank all of you. With your interestand your support you make it pos-sible!

 What is Hyppotherapy? 
Hippotherapy, also named Aloka, is a form of physical, occupational and speech ther-apy in which a therapist uses the
characteristic movements of a horse to providecarefully graded motor and sensory input
. It is used to improve neurological func-tion and sensory processing which can be generalized to a wide range of daily activi-ties. It’s very useful for children with autism.Hippotherapy is a Greek Word meaning therapy aided by a horse (=hippos). The ear-liest recorded mention of the word “hippotherapy” is in the
ancient Greek writings of Hippocrates
. In 1960s, when it was not yet developed as a formalized discipline, itbegan to be used in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in addition to traditional physi-cal therapy. The first curriculum has been formulated in the late 1980s by a group of Canadian and American therapists after a visit to Germany. The discipline was for-malized in the United States in 1992 by the American Hippotherapy Association(AHA). AHA established official standards of practice and formalized therapist educa-tional curriculum processed for Occupational, Physical and Speech therapists in theUnited States of America.
The experience in Thailand 
In Thailand the experimentation of hyppotherapy was set up on 6
February 2008thanks to the collaboration with RAJANAGARINDRE Institute of Child Development (RICD), Packsquadron Chaing-mai, the Ministry of Defense of Thailand, Royal Thai Army and Autistic’s parents. It’s organized every Wednesday inthe spaces provided by Packsquadron Chaingmai.
How to organize Hippotherapy? 
In order to organize hyppotherapy, it’s fundamental to have
trained teachers
,skillful in horseback riding and who also have a knowledge in Autistic and de-velopmental stimulation. It’s also important to prepare autistic children andtheir parents for understanding the programs, to train parents as a teacher’said for safety purpose and developmental stimulation during the programs andto do the assessment of the autistic children before and after 12 sessions of Hippotherapy. In addition, you obviously need  tame and well trained horsesand very broad areas.
Which are the benefits? 
The rhythmic and multidimensional movement of horse provides variable
repetitive sensory stimulation
to patients.The stimulation can be varied and manipulated by a trained therapist to fit a patient’s needs and stimulate improvedfunctioning of daily living. Hyppotherapy thus stimulates the rider and help enhance balance, good posture, mobility,co- ordination and strength. It aids mental functioning and it improves mood and self confidence as well.It is indicated for children and adults with mild to severe neuromuscular dysfunction and it is good for impairmentssuch as abnormal muscle tone, poor balance, poor co-ordination, sensory dysfunction, postural asymmetry, poor postural control and decreased mobility. It can also be widely used to treat Cerebral Palsy, developmental delays,traumatic brain injury, stroke and autism.In Thailand it’s in particular used for autistic children.
