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.
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 educate the public about equine assisted programs and activities. We are excited to be able to offer this service to the community and look forward to sharing our expansion with you in the near future.
Untamed Spirit received its official 501 (c)(3) designation in September 2010. We rely on the generosity of people like you and would like to express our gratitude. Your tax deductible donations make this possible. Thank you!
