//

The South Korean government says about 10 percent of the population between the ages of 10 to 19 is addicted to the Internet. Parents are flustered by children obsessed with Internet porn or who stay up all night gaming. But some kids are getting help from an unlikely source: horses. Therapists say horse-riding therapy works when other means fail. The connection between human and animal helps address emotional issues, therapists say, that are the real source of the addiction. via Reuters
