Here is what some of our clients have to say about us

"Farming Connections has been a very important part of Max’s growth this year. Even during times of great stress and anxiety he is able to be successful there. Working with Gail, Buster and all of the animal therapists-in-residence has strengthened his abilities to read and respond to nonverbal cues. Max loves his time spent on the farm, and so do we!"

Martha Lewin and Paul Karras

"For my child, a therapeutic riding lesson is a combination of physical, occupational, speech and sensory integration therapy all rolled into one."

Lisa and Stephen Harris

"Walking into the Farming Connections Barn, we are surrounded by a comforting homey feel. Gail's kind and postive spirit is so welcoming and that is reflected in all the animals that are lucky to call this place home. The work that Gail does has a profound effect on my son's life and my family. Her wisdom and passion is evident in every lesson and meeting. She has consistently gone above and beyond to assist in our challenging times. For all of this, my son and I are forever grateful."

"Gail is delightful.  She listens, collaborates and is well prepared for lessons.  Gail clearly has deep knowledge and understanding of her horses as well as the clients with special needs who benefit from this service."

Lisa and Stephen Harris

"There is a significant unspoken connection between child and horse which has remained substantial and consistent over time.  They trust, understand and look out for one another.  It is obvious.  It is amazing."

Lisa and Stephen Harris

"Our family has known Gail Lilly through Centered Connections/Farming Connections for over eight years now and as a result, I feel qualified to pass along my thoughts regarding her horse-centered therapy program. All three of my grandchildren, at various stages of their lives have spent significant time with Gail and the animals that reside on Stable Drive. It is my pleasure to say that while each child has had a different experience, the quality of commitment to a personalized program was always consistent. As a result of time spent at the barn with Gail, one by one, progress in the areas of personal development has been witnessed as each child has learned to manage their behavior and feelings and cope with stress while atop Oakie, Henry or Buster. Watching a child's self-esteem flourish has been a gift. Gail nourishes each child on a very personal level with dedication to a goal of success for each and every one."
