Who We Are...
We are a unique non-profit organization that seeks to better the lives of children and adults with special needs and limitations through positive interaction with a wide variety of animals. At HAPPI Farm, students and their families can participate in fun activities and learn useful skills in a positive environment. Animal assisted activities can help the student overcome physical and emotional challenges, minimize stress and anxiety, boost self- esteem, hone social skills, and foster a new sense of independence and confidence.

My name is Lisa Simmons and with great pleasure, I write this testimonial to let others know that there is a way to better yourself and progress to your potential without taking fistfuls of medication or hearing people say “you'll never get better”. It’s the fantastic organized therapy of holding or petting animals and riding a horse at HAPPI Farm. It may sound trite or silly but the progression I have encountered during my short time at the farm has wanted me to continue with this therapy in great hopes of wanting to walk and learning how to maintain balance. Using my core and keeping balance, reaching for the reins, turning the horse in different directions and controlling the animal has helped me focus on getting better with my ailment of Multiple Sclerosis. I can see the progression of others who have Autism or Cerebral Palsy. The way they shine and sit tall in the saddle and learn new and interesting ways of doing things have benefits that are a life time savor and a never ending thrill of accomplishment. My goal is to ride by myself (presently, I have to ride double in case I tilt too much). I used to ride and I love it and always will. I started attending classes at HAPPI Farm in June 2013; at first the owner thought I might not be able to ride. It is now May 2014 and I rode about an hour today. With continuation of riding and physical exercise, I will obtain my goals. Thank you to the volunteers and staff at HAPPI Farm.
