"Before this program came into my children’s lives they were struggling, and I was struggling with how to support and help them. Now they are steadily improving and finding their way into a life that gives them choices and possibilities. The adaptive horse therapy program at Laughing Buck Farm has been the most game-changing experience for them both. I am eternally grateful."
- Scholarship recipient
My younger child received a scholarship through the nonprofit. Through his work with the horses he has grown his ability to self-regulate and verbalize what is happening for him when he struggles. His self confidence has increased by a huge amount. Through this as well as occupational therapy his vestibular system has matured making his physical coordination improve dramatically.
As a low income family of five, we struggle to find enrichment activities for our kids. Our youngest asks daily for farm class and she has already assured us she will work "super good" to care for the animals, especially Rosie the pig. It would mean the world to us to receive a scholarship.
