The passing of Julie Faul on June 6th of this year has inspired Rainbow Farms to sponsor an individual to participate in weekly hippo-therapy lessons for up to 5 months through our Julie Faul Memorial Scholarship! Hippo-therapy is a form of physical, occupational and speech therapy which a therapist uses the movements of a horse to provide carefully graded motor and sensory guidance for an individual. The lesson includes an occupational therapist and a veteran horse trainer who partner up to facilitate one of the most meaningful and individualized lesson plan(s) of a lifetime; the same opportunity Julie was able to participate in.
This Scholarship is in honor of Julie, who although battled with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), is known for her wholeheartedness and will to train through hippo-therapy lessons here at Rainbow Farms. Julie's happiest moments were shared among us and in remembrance of this young woman, we have the honor of offering another rider the same opportunity Julie had.
All proceeds towards the Julie Faul Memorial Scholarship will pay for an individual chosen through Rainbow Farms referrals to participate in one lesson per week for up to five months in honor of Julie's legacy. This scholarship will allow an individual to create an everlasting bond with one of our horses and also challenge themselves as individuals and human beings.
