Project Stable has discontinued it’s therapeutic riding program in Southwest Ranches. We hope to start again when the new farm park opens in Davie. We want to thank all our volunteers and contributors that made our program a success. Our plan is to expand our services in cooperation with the Town of Davie when the Governor Lee Roy Collins farm park becomes a reality. It is currently in a development stage. Our horses have been semi- retired to the Ocala area. Our 4H farm animal club remains active in Southwest Ranches. We plan to offer youth activities in the Ocala area in the near future. These programs will be both in Broward County and Ocala.
*Provide a program for special-needs children through the use of horses and farm animals to help them overcome their disabilities.
*Provide agricultural education to school age children to allow them to understand the importance of agriculture and its role in our daily lives.
*Provide volunteer opportunities for College and high school students to learn the importance of volunteering and the difference they can make in the life of a special-needs child.
The Story of Jack
Friday, May 14, 2010, Jack was born. What a surprise! Jacks body looked normal, but his nose was not right. Jack was born with a condition called Wry Mouth.
At first our research and the vet’s opinion was to put Jack down since he would not be able to feed himself and he looked disfigured. Further research led us to the University of Florida and an answer to Jacks dilemma. After speaking with the vet there and sending pictures, we found an expert in this field who has performed many successful operations of this type.
Over the part five years Jack has become an inspiration to our handicap students. The parents of these children have told us how seeing Jack go from a disabled horse to now being whole inspires their children.
