".......William was an angel sitting beautifully with Louise on the electric horse for his hippotherapy but when he saw the ponies afterwards he could not contain his excitement - he absolutely loved the time he spent with them. A huge thank you to Louise for her slow pace (suited William's type of cerebral palsy perfectly), and for her organisation - the ponies magically appeared at the window at just the right time and they had a special feed prepared ready for William to help them with. Can't wait until next week" C Coale
"Since we introduced Gracie to ponies, we have seen major improvements in her speech and language development, and it has also given her the confidence to be able to interact with our friends and her school friends with out hiding under
blankets, this has also had a huge impact on our family life as social events with friends are no longer worried about! Gracie has finally found something of interest to bring her out of her shell and we are now moving forward in her development. I truly believe this is due to the wonderful work, and bond children and ponies can have together." L Morris
