Therapist & Venue
My son, now 12 years, joined Mirrabelles classes in Natural Horsemanship 2 years back. First he was reluctant, like he is to any additional afternoon programs. He is rather chatty and lives in his mind, and doesnt want to be obliged to follow what I feel is good for him.
I saw the progress in self confidence, and opening up emotionally within 2 weeks. Since now nearly 2 years, his twice weekly Natural Horsemanship classes with "his pony" and Mirrabelle is his favorite activity, and he is always sure to be on time to go! He has changed a lot, is so much more aware emotionally, and developed a keen observation of the living beings around him. All with just 1 pony! and Mirrabelles very professional guidance
