"Our son has benefited so much from therapeutic riding at Laughing Buck Farm. It has been a ray of positive light during this pandemic for him. The instructor he works with is amazing, receptive and really "gets him". He comes home refreshed and energized from his time at the farm. We can also see our son making strides in his social-emotional development, physical awareness and empathy as a result of his work at LB. There is no question in our minds that joining the horses and instructors at Laughing Buck is one of the best decisions we could have made for our son."
The lessons Have helped my son to improve his focus and balance while enjoying the activity. His connection with the horse has improved his confidence and self awareness. It’s incredible how much joy these creatures can give to humans. On the other side, watching the class surrounded by the farm vibe while sitting under a tree is the highlight of my week.
I have amazing news I want to share with you. Last week my son had his neuro psych testing at Children's Hospital. Yesterday we got the results. When he was first tested a year and a half ago, he only scored in the fifth percentile in graphomotor processing speed. We were hoping with all of the therapies and work we have done at home we would see an improvement. Ten percent was our goal. They didn't give us much hope it could improve by more than that. Yesterday we found out he was in the 23rd percentile. We were blown away. I'm sharing this with you because we believe his time at farm school and adaptive riding are a big part of why his numbers have increased so much. We want to thank you for being a part of this. Thank you for all you and your team are doing. We can't thank you enough.
