Autism, Asperger & OCD

How about getting away to a quiet and beautiful place? Spending time in nature with our horses & cows. Come for the day or stay overnight.

Mountain Horse Farm created this unique opportunity for adults (18 years and older) with high-functioning Autism, Asperger or OCD. Inspired by the wonderful work of Dr. Temple Grandin and designed to promote relaxation, wellness, healing and giving a break from a world filled with sensory overload.

What we offer:
  • The Horse & Cow experience
  • ​Massages
  • Mindfulness, Stillness & Breathing
  • ​Creativity
  • Helping around the barn

The Horse & Cow experience lets you spend time with our horses & cows, without riding.  No prior experience with horses or cows is necessary. This unique experience can bring relaxation, healing, awareness about your body language, comfort, Mindfulness, build assertiveness, help with overcoming fear, build confidence, lets you be playful and teaches you to set boundaries. It can help you work through obstacles in your life and it can be helpful if you feel stuck and you are looking for a new way.  The horse & cow experience is experiential and it lets you find your own solutions. 

We offer relaxing Massages in our quiet & beautifully decorated massage room. Our experienced, licensed massage therapists will customize the massage to your needs, from deep pressure to Swedish or our specialty acupressure massage. Choose your oil or lotion, with or without scents or essential oils. Choose your music or decide not to have music at all and choose to use our regular blankets or weighted blankets. 

​Mountain Horse Farm is situated on 33 peaceful acres with gorgeous views. It's easy to find a quiet place to relax, be still, practice Mindfulness or simply breathe.

Creativity is a wonderful way to -be present- and to express yourself. We help you create fun, inspiring projects, that will include using materials we find on the farm.

Helping with barn chores lets you interact with the horses & cows in a unique & relaxing way. It may bring a sense of accomplishment of a job well done, learn job skills like following directions, help with social skills, like making small talk and to gain more insights in social structures, just by watching the cows & horses interact with each other.

All sessions, except the massages, are facilitated by Tina Albright-Menna and Suzanne Vullers.
​Sessions are $300 per person for a 90 minutes session.

The massages are facilitated by our licensed massage therapists.
​A 60 minutes massage starts at $100. Add-ons like essential oils are extra.

Overnight stays in one of our elegant room or traditional Sioux tipis can be added.
