Once Upon a Time...
The Healing Place
One day, a sign mysteriously appeared below the Fargnoli Farms sign. It said "The Healing Place."
To this day, we don't know who put it there.
Our mission is to partner with horses to provide therapies
and education in support of people experiencing health, social and life challenges.
Please keep reading to learn more about our many programs and how horses lead the way to peace and healing for so many.
The 7 Keys to Success program guides youth at risk in making career choices and remaining committed to their education. Utilizing the power of Equine Assisted Learning and civic engagement, we teach youth to recognize their strengths and apply them to meaningful career choices. We teach the importance of education in attaining career goals.
I Talk With Horses
In collaboration with the department of Speech Language Pathology and Audiology at Ithaca College, we partner graduate clinicians with low or non verbal children. Communication miracles are happening with the horse leading the way!
A therapeutic riding program for children with physical and emotional limitations. Children with physical limitations experience the freedom to explore interesting spaces and outdoor spaces, play sports such as football and soccer. Such explorations are difficult or impossible to navigate in a wheelchair or walker but become completely accessible on the back of a horse.
iThis riding program is designed to physically strengthen specially abled riders as well as grow confidence and engage positive social behaviors in our autistic youth.
Our therapeutic riding programs empower our specially abled community to interact and engage with our volunteers and therapeutic treatment professionals.
Many of these children have numerous therapy sessions per week.Equine Assisted Therapies seem more like play and the benefits are huge. While they are on horseback they are actually working their minds and their bodies
Puts siblings of special needs children together in a supportive environment where they can share experiences and feel they are not different. It gives them needed respite while encouraging them in the very important roles they fulfill in the care of their siblings. They plan day events, journal, craft and best of all interact with horses and enjoy the benefits of being outdoors.
The Victory Project
In addition to our present success implementing equine-based services with children with disabilities and teens at-risk, our organization is uniquely qualified to serve veterans. Horses are prey animals, and like those who have been to war, rely on their heightened senses for survival. They react to and mirror the emotions of visitors directly, without words and without judgement. Herd behavior is similar to a military unit. Horses can teach us to be “at ease,” and being at our stable can help keep veterans socially connected.
