I first learned about New Leaf Farms when I was looking for an unconventional way to help my daughter deal with her ADHD and anxiety.
Was I ever lucky to find this place. Melissa who is the owner was an absolute joy to meet. My daughter had one on one classes with her which included learning how to care for a horse, feed it, lead it, and so much more. What was so profound was how the horse played off my daughter’s reactions. If she started getting too energetic, unable to focus, the horse would start getting restless. Melissa would then remind Eden to almost be present and remember that she is handling the horse now.
New Leaf Farms is such a wonderful place and I hope to be back there soon in the spring with my daughter again.
