“The startling benefits to children with autism of regular contact with alpacas – although largely unexplained – is unequivocally proven.”
DR HILARY DEVINE
“Alpacas impart a sense of calm intelligence that cannot fail to be transferred to those spending time with them.”
ELIZABETH E FRANCOMBE
“Just an hour spent with these charming creatures did more for me that a month of weekly sessions with my therapist! I can’t recommend it enough.”
We are very pleased to be working with Stable Mates Therapy
Recent feedback from them below:
Great Ground Farm Stable Mates Therapy is very excited to be working in association with Great Ground Farm. Their wonderful, graceful, funny and interactive herd have proven a real hit with clients. Our clients are mainly, children with behavioural and emotional issues, but also adults with learning difficulties and family groups needing assistance. The therapeutic benefit of alpacas is clear, with even the most vulnerable able to interact safely with the animals in the beautiful setting of Great Ground Farm. No one can dismiss the honour of forming a bond of trust with an prey animal, whose very survival relies on their ability to escape the threat of a predator…a category which of course, we humans fall into. The reindeer are a fascinating and somewhat magical twist to what’s on offer here, as they roam their own forest showcasing Wayne’s stunningly crafted, organic environment. The opportunities this set up offers from a local school group ‘story telling’ arena, to learning survival skills and workshops, or in our case, a therapeutic backdrop to learning about body language and how animals should live within their own community, is a wonderful bonus that should not be kept a secret any longer! Thank you to all at Great Ground Farm. Kate Kee- Stable Mates Therapy.
