WESTLAKE, Texas, Aug. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The 4th annual Aspiration Summit, a special 4-day event for young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder and related profiles, will be held September 5-9 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The program is sponsored by Solera Holdings, Inc. (Solera), in partnership with Aspire, a Mass General Hospital therapeutic program, and Jackson Hole Therapeutic Riding Association (JHTRA). The Summit benefits attendees with a transformational experience by enabling them to bond with trained therapy horses, the great outdoors, and each other.

During the Summit's 4 days, the participants are taught how to ride and care for their own horse—grooming the animals and practicing a handful of training tactics. Professional trainers from JHTRA walk beside each participant and horse to provide encouragement along the ride.

Beyond the training paddock and the JHTRA facilities is an expansive stretch of mountains and breathtaking scenery. In addition to daily horse training, the Summit includes a number of outdoor team-building activities, enabling participants to test new skills, build confidence to take on everyday challenges and establish authentic relationships in picturesque Wyoming.

"I would love to thank everyone for giving me this opportunity to grow as a person and learn more about myself, and what I want to do and what I want to achieve in the world," said Ryan Marquez, former Aspiration Summit participant. "I feel like this provided me a good foundation and a good environment to learn about myself."

Solera, a global leader in data and automotive technology, has woven the principles of generosity and community into its DNA. Founder and CEO, Tony Aquila, lends his ranch to the Summit and spends an evening with the participants, an activity he relishes the most.

"This is an event that I really look forward to every year," said Aquila. "Philanthropy has always been a big part of my life and something that I've brought to Solera. We've been able to play a small role in bettering the lives of these participants through the Summit, and that's something I don't take for granted."
