Leadership Greenville Class 45 Happy Hooves
Leadership Greenville Class 45
Happy Hooves is a therapeutic riding center that serves children and adults with disabilities, as well as at-risk children and teens by providing horse-centered programs. Participants ride and care for horses, developing exceptionally rewarding relationships that benefit mind, body, and spirit. Through these programs participants show cognitive, physical, emotional, social, and behavioral improvements. Located in Marietta, SC at Eden Farms, Happy Hooves strives to improve the lives of individuals in Upstate South Carolina through the connections developed with these horses.
Leadership Greenville Class #45 is working with Happy Hooves to improve their current playground facilities.
- Replacing current outdated equipment with new pieces better suited for children with disabilities
- Sensory wall. Adding a new feature that helps stimulate and engage senses, a technique used in current riding trails at the farm
- Creating a welcoming and inviting entrance to the playground, which can be seen from the front parking lot as well as a new shelter area for picnic tables
Happy Hooves offers a unique experience for children with disabilities, and with this new playground, that experience can be even more impactful. Please consider donating to or sponsoring Leadership Greenville Class #45’s Happy Hooves project.
