Our daughter has been a weekly visitor to Whitefields Stables since July 2013. We first heard about Whitefields after reading an ad in the paper advertising a summer camp for children and teenagers with the same ability as our daughter. Our first though was that the add was too good to be true , but how wrong we were.
After a phone call we went to visit Whitefields and we were greeted with such friendship. Our daughter is non verbal , has a very short concentration span, likes to wonder off, has problems with fine and gross motor skills, and her posture both walking and sitting was not great. So one could understand why we were apprehensive in leaving our 9 year old with strangers.
Move on a year and a half later and how things have changed for our daughter. I now take Laura out of the car and she walks into Whitefield by herself, she takes her pony by the reins to the arena and her posture while walking and sitting on the pony has improved so much.
Our daughter engages so well with all at Whitefields and has no bother following simple instructions.
During the summer of 2014 Laura attended summer camp, the joy in our hearts that our daughter could attend summer camp and be with her friends was something that we as parent’s thought we would never see. While at summer camp, Laura got to do such a range of activities, but most of all, Laura was with her friends and was independent of her family.
Our daughters life has changed so much for the better since July 2013 and we are so happy we found such a special place and such excellent people who own and run Whitefields.
We are so proud of Laura and so proud of Whitefields .
