The Horse Boy

Rupert Isaacson is a journalist and author who has been a client of Pen Llyn for some time. Living in Texas, USA he travels thousands of miles to ride with us and is now a livery client having bought a son of Uivador. His latest book 'The Horse Boy' is the incredible true story of how horses and shamans have helped to alleviate his son's autism. It is flying off the shelves both in the UK and Worldwide. We helped launch his book at the Hay-on-Wye Festival in 2009 as Lusitanos are going to be an integral part of an Equine Autistic Centre to be set up in the UK. Pen Llyn Stud will be assisting in this venture which is in it's infancy but we are very much looking forward to helping Rupert in this project. We have already trained several horses for such centres. For more information on Training Horses for Horse Boy Methods see our Training Page.

A documentary film that accompanies the film is to been shown on BBC4 on 24th November 2009 at 9pm on Storyville. For a preview and more information visit

Rupert founded a similar centre in Texas in 2008 that uses horses to help develop social skills of autsitic children. For more details visit

"Janine Pendlebury is a true genius,

and that rare thing - a Grand Prix level rider who can train horses and teach people as well as she rides herself. She has that special gift of being able to take all the stress out of dressage and replace it with joy, so both you and the horse partner up quickly and effectively. In just 20 rides she an her superb schoolmaster stallions transformed me from a cross country rider to a classical rider able to handle changes, laterals, piaffe, passage and even airs and pirouettes on a variety of horses. Even to the extent that I could confidently get on horses not trained by her and perform the same movements well. Unlike many trainers Jan genuinely wants to see each rider become as good as they can possibly be and gives you all the tools to gt there. And I'm not the only one she's done this for. There is a reason why I fly halfway across the world to take lessons at Pen Llyn. In one hour with Jan you will get further than a week at many other training facilities. Spend a week with her and her incredible schoolmasters and you will be transformed into that classical rider you always wanted to be but didn't know how to become. Put simply: if you are serious about classical and want to experience true joy on horseback, go to Pen Llyn. "
