One of Merryfield Village’s dreams was to have horses for therapy with our children. In our planning, we thought it would be a program started in phase two or three. Just a few months ago, we were introduced to a lady that had a horse farm, she told us she needed to sell a horse, and a family in the U.S. donated money for MV to purchase it! So now horse therapy is a phase one outreach. Also, not long after that, a woman approached us and told us she had two rescue horses. She said she didn’t know then why she took in the horses. But now, after hearing of Merryfield, she knew she rescued them for us. She has donated those two horses. We are excited as this type of therapy can be a tremendous tool in helping children coming from traumatized backgrounds. Over the past month or so we’ve been to able to take children and adults out to the horses to introduce them to this type of therapy.
