Hello Happy Hooves friends and family,

Thank you to everyone who helped make Wines & Equines such an unforgettable evening and such a success!  Over $24,000 was raised to support our non-profit therapeutic riding program.  We cannot express how much we appreciate our Happy Hooves business partners who made donations to support Happy Hooves.  Please be sure to check out these amazing people and organizations.  If you haven't seen the photo album Wines & Equines , be sure to check it out! 

Jonathan, one of our Happy Hooves riders, loved being part of the therapeutic riding demonstration at Wines & Equines!

Also, how would you like to take your children to a family friendly event where they can ride "reindeer", visit with Santa, see a live interactive Nativity Scene, nibble on hot chocolate & cookies, and much more?  We hope you save the date for CHRISTMAS AT THE BARN on Sunday December 9th, 2018 from 2pm to 5pm.  Tickets are on sale now! 
Photos from last year's Christmas at the Barn can be found here!  We hope to see you there!

God bless you and keep you,
Becky Sweeney


Shane looks forward to 
'riding days'! 
Shane is a first grader at Concrete Primary and will be turning seven in just a few days. He began coming to Eden Farms after his Occupational Therapist suggested equine therapy would be beneficial to him.
Shane is outgoing, loves everyone and doesn't meet a stranger. He has had many hurdles to face but continues to amaze us with excelling in school, primarily in reading. He was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder at age 2 and began therapy. During that time the therapist recommended further testing as she suspected he was in the Autism Spectrum. After a lengthy time of being on a waiting list, appointments and testing, Shane was diagnosed being in the Autism Spectrum and also ADHD. During these tests it was also revealed he has Central Sleep Apnea and a mild seizure disorder.
He has Speech, Occupational, Physical therapies and blessed to have Equine Therapy at Eden Farms. He always looks forward to 'riding days' and says bouncing on the horses " Makes him feel so good"! We are blessed to be a recipient of a scholarship.  There is something special about the one on one bond that he shares when riding horses that he really loves. He has been fortunate to have been a recipient of riding sessions and Horse Camp during the Summer.
