Oliver’s Olympic Dream

Oliver is 15 years old, Autistic, has ADHD and Anxiety. For Oliver being on the Autism Spectrum means he has significant challenges in daily life including regulating emotions, being organised, understanding social situations and maintaining friendships.

When Oliver was 10 years old, he took his first horse riding lesson. From that moment he loved being with horses and started having regular lessons. After being inspired by other riders in his school, he set himself a goal. For 2023, Oliver has been selected to represent Australia at World Games in Berlin. Oliver is one of only 4 equestrians chosen to go to Berlin, so this is a huge achievement.
