I have the honor if being on the board at Brook Hill Farm, but also have the great pleasure of teaching riding lessons to the young people in the United Neigh Program. This program quite simply changes lives, both horse and human. As a Board Member, I can vouch for the well-thought out and executed business plan, which is so vital to ensure the continued health of the farm. As an instructor, I get to see the progress made by the youth in the program, and as an adopter, I'm so grateful that Brook Hill Farm exists. This really is an exceptional place, and it's a joy and a great privilege to be involved.
Brook Hill Farm was founded to provide rehabilitation focused therapy and a safe haven for unwanted horses. However, along the way, they discovered the magic combination of horses and children; how they help teens that are economically disadvantaged, disabled and abused find their way. This program is a great success for the teens and the horses. They have rescued over 387 horses and have a 100% graduation rate for the teens that participate in their United Neigh Program. Not only that, they are a great presence in our community offering youth and adults equine education and a chance to participate in their programs or volunteer. This program has changed the lives of many teens in this area, and have saved the lives of even more horses.
I started here as a Volunteer from college and the love and support I found made me want to be at the barn 24-7, and the staff embraced me as part of the family at Brookhill. Everyone is committed to helping at risk youth and the horses that find there way to the farm; I can't think of a better place to serve. They accept every horse, child, and worker for who they are, and provide a safe environment to heal and grow. I have stayed with Brookhill as an intern and a board member. Once i stepped onto Brookhill soil, I became a Brookhill girl for life. I came to the farm from a past of torment and found peace. Thank God for the blessing of Brookhill farm! -jls
Wonderful organization! The farm does rehabilitation and rescue as well as providing a wonderful youth program. The free lease for life program has been very successful and there are lots of happy horse owners out there thanks to Brook Hill!
