Mission Statement

  • We are dedicated to provide a community activity and work program for children and young adults with special needs and developmental disabilities at a Miniature Horse Farm. We teach dependability and responsibility as we help individuals with special needs grow in self-esteem, confidence, socialization, acceptance, and productive individuals recognized for their accomplishments.

Description

Our team members have the opportunity to enjoy both working and playing with Miniature Horses on a daily or weekly basis. We help them build the skills to take the responsibility to take care of and handle a horse and we provide an opportunity for them to learn to exhibit a horse at numerous miniature horse shows.

There is something magic about the interaction of "Special People with Special Horses". Not only does the owner/handler with special needs learn to care for the horses but the horses learn to care for the special handler.
