After a week at Foymount Farm my daughter came home more independent while displaying a higher degree of respect of animals and people.
She is more aware of the role that body language plays in communication and the values instilled through the horsemanship lessons have had an impact on her everyday interactions.
I watched with interest as the instructions with the horses and while doing chores took into account the personality of each child and every occasion was used to help them improve their interactions with the animals. It was clear that this not only kept the children safe around the animals but also helped them feel comfortable in this new environment.
Foymount Farm's emphasis on sustainable living, a nurturing environment for the animals and the staff's positive outlook on life have stuck with my daughter as she recounts the wonderful experience she had there."
