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 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.
Forward Motion Farm encompasses almost 25 acres of farmland, surrounded by aged trees in a 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.
Non Profit – Untamed Spirit Therapeutic and Educational Program
As of September 14, 2010, Forward Motion Farm became the Home of a new non profit organization: Untamed Spirit Therapeutic and Educational Program. This non profit will serve special needs children and adults and offer educational workshops to the community about equine assisted programs. We are excited to be able to offer this program to the community and look forward to sharing our expansion with you in the near future. We are classified as a Virginia Charity and have applied to the IRS for our 501(c)3 tax exemption. We hope to have our 501(c)3 notification by the end of 2010.
