Review for Haven Horse Ranch, St. Augustine, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son has been a client at Haven Horse Ranch for several years, and he has shown steady improvement with his sensory processing disorder, among his other issues tied to Asperger's Syndrome and Bipolar /Depression. The therapists havery had their work cut out for them with Sammy, and they have succeeded in helping him cope with everyday life and even find some enjoyment. Living and coping with the multitude of issues that accompany a diagnosis such as Sammy's can seem puzzling and impossible at times, but hippotherapy has been the only thing that has worked for my son. I HIGHLY recommend this type of therapy and the therapists at Haven Horse Ranch are an extremely caring bunch. Thank you!

Review for Haven Horse Ranch, St. Augustine, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The therapists at Haven Horse Ranch have helped my son extensively with problems related to Asperger's Syndrome, namely Sensory Processing Disorder. He could only bear to wear clothing 3 sizes too big for him, but through the hippotherapy program and patience of the staff, he is now wearing clothing the correct size and doing much better emotionally. No other type of therapy worked! Thank you!

Haven Horse Ranch has offered the best therapy ever to not only my son but many others that I have watched with their therapy! My son started coming to Haven Horse Ranch almost a year and a half ago with severe sensory issues. He could not bear to wear most fabrics and would only wear clothing 3 times his actual size. He would only wear 1 shirt which had to be 100% rayon, button-front men's size 3x shirt. He hated the feeling of another shirt because it didn't feel the same, even if it were made of the same fabric, the same brand, even the same pattern. He only had 1 pair of beat up pants he would wear and I feared that the day would soon come that I could not sew them back together. Within just a few months of working with the therapists and horses, my son began to incorporate more shirts into his wardrobe. He gradually built up the courage to try new pants after about 10 months. Now, just a little shy of 1 year and a half, he has a closet full of shirts, including some new T-Shirts, and has a few different pairs of shorts! He is also wearing new shoes in which he can stand to put the backs up when he has to! He has become more cooperative and willing to try new things, even new food! I cannot thank the staff and the horses at Haven Horse Ranch enough for the transformation we have seen with my son!
