Our horses are helping our students reach goals they never imagined. Lily Creek Farms is a therapeutic riding center that recently relocated to Napoleon, Ohio. We have a professional team providing hope and healing opportunities through the use of equine-assisted activities.
We have seen firsthand how working with a 1,500 pound animal and gaining its trust increases a person's self-confidence, self-respect, and sense of responsibility and belonging. The farm is place where people of all ages benefit physically, cognitively, and emotionally from a wide variety of horse experiences tailored to their needs by our horses, instructors, and volunteers.
At Lily Creek Farms, little victories happen every day. A 10-year-old with Autism speaks his first words, "Walk On" to his horse after only two sessions. A 13-year-old in a wheelchair rides independently after only a few weeks. Adult students with MS reduce pain and increase flexibility. At risk youth turn failing grades to honor roll and go on to careers and colleges. These moments are beyond words and remind us again that our philosophy is true... Faith, Hope, and Love, but the greatest of these is Love!
