Since all of the horses are getting older and experiencing common health issues faced by aging horses, none of the horses are being ridden. The horses can be visited by all participants but can only be brushed when an individual is with a therapist with the therapeutic riding certification.
Our mission is to optimize the behavioral, emotional and social growth of youth. We incorporate the animals to help establish rapport with clients, to improve compliance with treatment, to maximize the individual's involvement and motivation for treatment.
Our clinicians utilize a variety of therapeutic methods to best help individuals living with anxiety, autism, depression, low self-esteem, post traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder and a variety of other conditions.
Of the children in treatment at Flying High Farm, more than 50% are diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum. This prompted the genesis of Puzzle Ponies, a psychotherapy practice for youth that incorporates ponies to best meet the various needs of this diverse group.
Telehealth is a way in which we can provide psychotherapy services to our clients via a computer, cell phone, tablet or laptop.
