    Story

    Any Extra funds raised will go to animal feed and bedding.

    We have created a stress-free, non-judgmental environment at The Little Explorers Activity Club for families with autism and other special needs to enjoy with our ponies offering animal-assisted therapy and therapeutic pony rides and activities for all abilities.

    Mainly working with children on the Autism Spectrum and their families but also families with anxiety and depression.

    Our Outcomes:

    Improved confidence, communication, self-esteem, skills & personal development. A sense of community and relief from isolation.

    We believe in tailoring each session to individual needs and empowering the parent’s knowledge and skills to be able to use our approach at home even without the ponies. We have developed a free PDF downloadable 30 page guide for the families to follow.

    Over the winter we have had our sessions paused due to the virus, we are raising some re-start money to fund our insurance to open again in the spring once this current Omicron wave is over.

    Spending time with ponies is proven to reduce anxiety, aid communication with kids on the autism spectrum, ADD, ADHD and reduce depression. It has been seen to lower blood pressure, help concentration, calm anxiety and build confidence. It has been clinically documented that just being around horses and ponies changes human brainwave patterns, we calm down and become more centered and focused when we are with them.

      This sounds like a wonderful project. My autistic son benefits greatly from weekly horseriding sessions and owning a retired greyhound. Animals are amazing ❤ Good luck with your fundraising.
