FarmAbility Equine Interaction & Therapy

Oxford, United Kingdom

Founded in 2011 as a pilot project and registered as a charity in 2013, FarmAbility provides a meaningful outdoor programme for co-farmers; adults with autism and learning disabilities.  Activities include animal care, horticulture, woodwork and seasonal farm tasks.

Learning how to groom and feed horses are useful practical skills, but they also meet our need to give value to others, which is particularly important for people who depend largely on others for support services. Becoming more confident to interact with a horse by reading her body language can be especially valuable for co-farmers with autism, who often find social interaction with other people challenging. Offering horse care activities on the farm is a significant and much-loved aspect of our programme.

sankalpa's support covers the ongoing costs of feeding FarmAbility's two horses and a pony and ensuring they stay healthy.
