“The program at Bodster Equine Assisted Learning Centre was found quite by accident by my wife on the Internet who was looking into things to do for our son in the local area. We booked our son onto a session, hoping for him to find an interest in or something for him to enjoy and we were not disappointed. On the first day when we collected him he said it was the best thing he had ever done and when could he return. He has since been back many times and now is a regular, I believe it is down to the hard work and effort put in by Jo and Giles and the ponies, who make the time spent there by our son such a good one. The horses on the farm have made a mark on him so much so, he has taken the time to write a letter (not an easy thing to do for a child with ADHD) to a local business asking for sun cream to help with the horses sun burnt noses!!. On returning from a day at Bodster Equine Assisted Learning Centre our son is a little calmer and more relaxed which obviously has a good effect on our family life. The program at Bodster Equine Assisted Learning Centre we believe, makes an unmeasurable contribution to the children who attend it, and this must be encouraged so it is available for more children to attend. Jo, Giles at Bodster Equine Assisted Learning Centre do a wonderful job and we wish them all the very best of luck for the future and look forward to our son continuing to as he says, “look after the horses”.”
