About Storybook Farm
Storybook Farm serves children ages 2 to young adulthood who face obstacles such as autism, cerebral palsy, cognitive delays, sensory integration issues and bereavement situations to name a few. Horseback riding provides physical benefits such as improvements to balance, motor skills, muscle strength and coordination.
In order to properly care for a horse, new skills have to be developed. Weekly lesson plans include games and activities tailored towards a measurable outcome. Children stay on task, focus, improve sequencing skills while learning to lead, groom and tack their horse. Interacting with our animals and volunteers leads to articulation of emotions and development of social skills as well. Click here for more about Storybook Farm.
