Welcome to Forward Motion Farm and the home of Untamed Spirit Therapeutic and Educational Program.
The mission of Untamed Spirit Therapeutic and Educational Program is to enhance and enrich the lives of individuals with special needs through a partnership with horses.
The concept of moving forward is the basis for a new horse facility located in Virginia Beach. Nestled in the heart of Pungo farmland, Forward Motion Farm, LLC was developed by Barbara S. Ford, Ashley Ford and Shaun Gayhart in the summer of 2010 as a blended equine community, bringing both able-bodied and special needs individuals together in a positive and encouraging outdoor farm environment. The farm encompasses almost 25 acres of farmland, surrounded by aged trees in an idyllic and tranquil setting. Facilities include a 28 stall barn, Indoor Riding Arena, outdoor jumping ring, outdoor Dressage ring, round pen and numerous pastures. Future plans include an additional ring for therapeutic lessons, additional pastures, conference room for clinics and workshops and a small animal sanctuary.
