My daughter is a bundle of emotions and she feels safe to share in your company rather than holding it all in. Getting my daughter up and out the house takes all my energy and sometimes I think is it worth all the pushback from her on the way. But yes it is very worth it and she always leaves the farm in a better place than she arrived, and I feel like I’m not alone in the world. I don’t know what I would do without you both.
At times raising our son feels very isolating and we have struggled to find activities which are suitable amongst people who are non-judgemental and accepting of who he is. Then we found EAQ Manor Farm and it transformed our Saturdays. Suddenly we had a child who was looking forward to doing an activity. This has been invaluable to us all.
We have seen many benefits from the sessions. Our daughter looks forward to coming as it gives her an escape from her pain and worries. She gets huge relaxation, enjoyment and the company of other adults.
It really relaxes me and I love seeing how the aromatherapy benefits the horses. Everyone here is really nice and I feel confident talking to them. I like focusing on the horses rather than my pain. EAQ Manor Farm is one of my favourite places to go.
Our son really enjoyed the activities, particularly the woods, marshmallows around the fire and making things. He enjoyed it so much he even managed some full day sessions. Roll on next summer.
We are so very grateful for all the care and support Ian, Kerry and their team have given to E. They are magnificent at their jobs and that coupled with the warmth, comfort and joy the horses bring is priceless.
Since our daughter has been introduced to the empathic and nurturing environment at EAQ Manor Farm she has finally found a place where she is able to feel safe. She really has developed a great bond with the horses and all the staff. We really can't thank Ian, Kerry and Mara enough.
A has thrived under the care of all at EAQ Manor Farm. She has managed small steps towards re-engaging with learning which is a massive achievement. Thank you!
Our daughter has become more confident and independent and happy to go off without me. She is much calmer and better regulated, has built trusted relationships and started to verbalise her thoughts and feelings. She loves it! Thank you!
