Lily Creek Farms?
We offer professional instructors, caring volunteers, and gentle horses. Our human-animal team provides rewarding and breakthrough experiences to improve the quality of our students' lives.
No other therapeutic recreational activity provides so many benefits in such a holistic manner. We have worked with and have witnessed results in people of many ages and abilities.
Students learn confidence, build strength, balance, and coordination along with gaining a sense of independence and freedom from his or her disabilities. We feel blessed to experience little miracles every day!
