       Bond Between Mount Olive Man, Therapeutic Horse Center


MOUNT OLIVE TWP. –  A love of bocci and a used bicycle have led to an unusual bond between a 62-year-old man and a woman who runs a therapeutic horseback riding program for children with autism.

Glenn Roth lives in Great Meadows and last year, he was looking for a place to play his beloved bocci. To his satisfaction, Roth found out that the Mount Olive Senior Center had two bocci courts and welcomed members. That’s how he got into the Mount Olive group.

Last year, Roth was searching for a gift for his grandson, Gradin, 2, and found a tricycle for free on the Freecycle.com website.

He got the bike, but decided the toddler wasn’t ready to ride it and put it back on Freecycle.com. That is where Aiyana Callaway was looking for a Christmas gift for her son when she saw the tricycle and contacted Roth.

Callaway owns the Horses-4-Hope Equestrian Center on  Laurel Hill Road, Mount Bethel, Pa., a small, non-profit organization that offers free therapeutic horseback riding for children and adults on the autism spectrum.

Roth, who was an Eagle Scout as a youth and a Scout volunteer for more than 15 years, had helped fund raise for Autism New Jersey, He was intrigued with Callaway’s programs.

      At Horses 4 Hope in Upper Mount Bethel, bonds created between mistreated horses, people with special needs

There are many horse farms in the Lehigh Valley but none quite like Horses 4 Hope.

The Upper Mount Bethel Township farm takes in injured or maltreated horses and nurses them back to health. The horses then provide free therapeutic rides for people with special needs or those with troubled lives.

Aiyana Callaway has a soft spot for mistreated horses. She also has a brother who has autism, so she is sensitive to those with special needs. Both of those characteristics make her a great fit to run the Horses 4 Hope Equestrian Center on Laurel Hill Road.


Callaway saw her brother benefit from interacting with horses when she lived in New York and felt strongly that she could help others.

"Riding horses gives people a sense of accomplishment and gives them confidence in their lives,
Callaway said.
