New Moon Shining Stables Therapeutic Day Use Facility/ Equine Assisted Learning center to open

May 7th, 2013 12:34 pm by Stephanie D. Sturgill-Adams

Three years ago, New Moon, our horse was born and captured our hearts with her shining personality and ability to make the cares of the world seem to melt away just by spending time with her.

After several turns of events, we realized that there is nothing more healing and therapeutic than our farm, our horses, and our family.

This is how New Moon Shining Stables came to be; so my family and I decided we needed to share with the rest of the world what God has given us right here on Meade Creek. We have developed an exciting new opportunity for our region as we have converted our farm into a Therapeutic Day Use Facility with Equine Assisted Learning and a Guided Horseback Trail Riding business. I am delighted to announce that our facility will be in full operation this spring/summer/fall season.

Our facility serves groups, individuals, as well as families in a variety of ways including equine assisted learning interaction and activities both indoors and outdoors. We have a swimming pool, game room, outdoor games and bicycle riding, and much more. We are handicap accessible and equipped with ramps and lifts to provide assistance to those in need of wheelchair accommodations.

Our facility specializes in but is not limited to providing services for our special needs population in Southwest Virginia as I am a veteran special education teacher of 13 years in Wise and Scott Counties as well as a QMHP Counselor with degrees in counseling and human development, psychology and social work.

I hope you will agree that a day use facility such as this and counseling using equine assisted learning is very much needed in our area, and know that I am honored to pioneer this program for our youth, elderly, teens, special needs individuals, families, and everyone in between.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have regarding New Moon Shining Stables and how our facility will meet your individual or organization's needs and goals.
