What you'll do

Meet miniature horses Waldo, Rosie, Ross, Napoleon & my rare Norwegian Fjords Sagan and Flint. Learn how to communicate and connect with them. Learn basic grooming techniques and how they give us affection. Play with them. Find out How they communicate with us. Horses are non-judgemental and help us to overcome many of life’s tragedies. They reach us on a deeper level than humans can!

My Horses & my Dog’s Conner and Kobi will take us beyond ourselves and fulfill our inner nurturing instincts and need for love, warmth and touch (and you will receive lots of hugs and kisses).

It has been documented that horses and ponies bring smiles, comfort, strength, and healing to people. They are therapeutic on many levels and for all ages! They tug on our heartstrings. They help us to overcome many personal obstacles from addition or post-traumatic stress disorders to physical injuries or social and behavioral challenges. The type of therapy that you will experience today introduces the basics of Equine Assisted Learning or “Hippotherapy”

My soulful therapy horses teach valuable “Life Skills” that include the ability to trust, have more confidence, more responsibility & relationship building experience.
Other things to note
Pack your allergy medicine and where comfortable clothes and closed toe shoes. Special times and days can be arranged.

Our family of four (2 adults/ 2 kids) had a fun afternoon at Cece's farm. We booked as a private group, so it was just us, Cece and the horses. We wanted a Covid-safe activity without other people around and this was a good choice. Cece was very generous with her time and we got to meet 6 different horses during our time together. Not sure if it's therapeutic as described, but it is relaxing to be on the farm, and fun to get to know the horses , each of which really do have their own distinct personalities. They let you hug them and they were wonderful with kids. Cece even offered to take the kids on a cart ride, since the mini horses pull carts. That was a highlight for the kiddos for sure! PRO TIP: bring some apple chunks to feed the horses. They loved them! And, she does have discounted kid rates, not currently posted on Airbnb, so be sure to ask about that in advance!

I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I booked this experience ... I just knew that my girlfriend and I love animals .. what better way to spend a birthday!? These horses are something special. They are soulful with distinct personalities and are deeply affectionate. You’ll be amazed at the amount of relaxation and peace you feel just by brushing one of their manes. Needless to say, we loved spending time with Napoleon- the stud , Waldo- the lover, Rose-the soft , Russ- the “quiet one”, Flint- the comedian, and Seagan- the punk rocker. You will too! Cece, the owner, was so warm, knowledgeable and generous with her time and space...She even let us take a ride on a carriage with Flint leading the way. We will definitely be back to see our new friends ☺️.

This was sweet! Cece is very knowledgeable about horses and has a lot of fun stories. This is a very chill activity and great for people who are new to horses and want some experience grooming and being around them.

I absolutely loved this experience! I really enjoyed meeting and interacting with all of the horses. The Norwegian fjords were very beautiful and we enjoyed our carriage ride with Flint after grooming and spending time with all the other horses. Cece's dogs Conner and Hero were very lovable and affectionate.This was a very tranquil and enjoyable experience. Cece was very friendly, informative and knowledgeable. She clearly loves her animals and has a passion for horses that I truly admired.
