Horses Help Children with Connections

JASPER, Ala. -- 15 -year- old Sam Dyson, and this horse, Doc, have made a special connection.
"He's been my best friend ever since I met him."
Sam has autism. But his friend Doc doesn't seem to mind. Actually they've been teaching one another new things.
"Every animal has intelligence and I've been teaching him how to be sneaky so he can steal some food," says Sam Dyson.
He's one of about 40 students who's apart of a program called Equines Assisting Special Individuals. It's a therapeutic riding program for children with disablities.
