It was fun working with Jayne. When I started with Miss Terri, I was experiencing a lot of anxiety because my mom worked with COVID patients, and I was scared she would get sick and die. Working with the horses made me feel better and helped me deal my fears.

When I brought my daughter to the farm to help with her anxiety, I didn’t realize how much it would help me as well. The stress of the pandemic was affecting me more than I had realized, and having the opportunity to spend time on the farm with the horses helped me to relax and refocus. My favorite was Charm, who was always ready for the attention I gave her!
Barn procedures taught my daughter safety and responsibility, especially with being around large animals. Feeding and grooming the horses grew her already abundant love for animals care and compassion. She was able to take all the skills she learned while working with the horses and apply them to school and home life.
