5 years later and I'm still volunteering here. Not a day goes by at Healing Horses "One child at a time" where you don't see some kind of healing and miracle happen. I can honestly say, I don't know where I would be if I hadn't continued coming here. I most likely would have made a left instead of making a right. I'm forever grateful for the positive influence and acceptance from Bev and the other volunteers.
Before going to Healing Horses, I thought horse therapy was just for physical needs. At Healing Horses, my granddaughter Miri receives therapy to communicate and relate to others. At each weekly session, Beverly Levitt constantly finds innovative ways to encourage Miri to increase both her vocabulary and sentence length.
Healing Horses and Beverly Levitt excel in multiple diverse areas. In addition to rescuing horses and therapy for special needs children, Healing Horses is a great place for teenagers. For Miri, relating to the teens is a vital part of her therapy.
Healing Horses is a win win situation all the way around for the horses, special children, as well as giving teenagers a productive way to spend their spare time.
Grandmothers are entitled to "senior moments". Frequently, I find myself saying that Miri goes to Heavenly Horses. For Miri, Healing Horses One Child at a Time is heavenly.
Healing Horses one Child at a time has helped my son in many ways. His core strength has improved, his fear of animals has improved, and his sensory defensiveness has decreased so much that he enjoys sitting on the ground at the farm and being covered with dog kisses. What a joy it was to hear him say with pride in his voice, "look Mommy, I'm surrounded by animals". Beverly is caring, loving and so patient with my son. She shares her love for horses, animals and nature with him, which my son also now shares. My son is always counting the days until he sees Bev and the horses. What a blessing it is to have them all in our lives.
