Mandy’s Therapeutic Pool
With an indoor, heated, brominated pool, Mandy’s provides a safe, relaxing environment for clients to enjoy therapeutic play, receive therapeutic services, and build physical strength. Kept at 92-degree temperatures, with a private restroom/ changing area, and open all year long, Mandy’s provides access to a therapeutic pool to all clients free of charge. Therapists, individuals, and groups who are not affiliated with Mandy’s Farm are welcome to rent time in our pool to enjoy these amenities.
Our instructors teach our clients to partner with their horse to learn horsemanship skills, build confidence, and improve their health, all while having fun in a safe environment. Clients build a relationship with the horses before moving towards riding. Each individual takes on a role for caring for all of the animals through feeding, watering, and grooming. Clients are given tools, supports, and training to learn about all aspects of horse care and handling so that they are confident and prepared riders. Clients receive weekly horsemanship classes through Day Services and through our Residential program for no additional charge.
Mandy’s Organic Gardening
Residents at Mandy’s Farm are invited to participate in weekly Organic Gardening and Nutrition Workshops. These workshops are designed to help participants foster a deeper connection between their food, their bodies and their environment.
Through Day Services, clients spend time each day working in the garden, whether through preparing the soil for planting, cultivating seedlings, watering, weeding, harvesting, or selling produce at local Farmer’s Markets.
Mandy’s Day Services
Mandy’s helps individuals to explore opportunities to advance their employment, education, life skills, health, and well-being. Our Day Services program offers workshops in fitness (martial arts, yoga, water aerobics, etc.), organic gardening, horsemanship, swimming, visual arts, cooking, and extensive service learning in the community. In addition to this clients are given opportunities to enjoy recreational activities in the community and collaborations with other Day Service programs, volunteer networks, and local community gardens.
