ROSE OF SHARON EQUESTRIAN SCHOOL INC
June 28, 2012

I first came to ROSES in 2009 the moment I pulled onto the property I could feel this place was special. The air just felt cleaner and the beautiful pastures and welcoming barn instantly eased my anxiety. After meeting Joan and the therapists (horses) I knew I had to be a part of this mission. With the help of the vocational director at the school I worked for we were awarded a grant to take 8 Autism Spectrum Adolescents to the farm once a week. Some of these students had never seen a farm before let alone a horse, so it is difficult for me to express with words alone how much this experience meant to these students. But from a practical stand point the data said it all. Students were more willing to do work and after returning from their morning session with the horses they were calm, more focuses, and eager to participate in activities. The horses also brought forward a strengthened ability to communicate. I wish I could tell you how it happened but you'll just have to ask one of the horses...
