Quarter Mile Farm's focus may be a surprise. Unbelievably, the horse is a marvelously therapeutic machine. At our farm, we use this to help the mentally challenged, developmentally delayed, and those with learning disabilities. Horseback Riding is a wonderful therapy. The students do stretching, strengthening, and rotating exercises on horseback that they normally do in a therapy room. Most students dislike normal therapy, but on a horse, it doesn't seem like therapy at all. They are more willing to reach forward to touch the horse’s ears or twist around to reach the horse’s tail because they’re having fun. When you enjoy an activity, it doesn’t seem so much like work, and you try harder without even realizing it!
