From our cancer retreat clients
“I came with no expectations, but left feeling uplifted and quite emotional.”
“I valued the way we were encouraged to share experiences of our cancer journey, and the opportunity to get to know others coping with similar but different problems.”
Horse Power helping young people
“I was lucky enough to visit Follyfoot with two of my students. I found a very peaceful environment where the students were cared for individually with their specific needs taken into account. The staff realise and understand that the children have complex requirements and are always aware of these when working with them.” “Our students are more relaxed and confident in their own abilities. This is seen when they return to school for the remainder of their week. I would recommend Follyfoot to others and would be happy to use this facility in the future.”
“My 10 year old daughter described it as her ‘best party ever”.
“My daughter had an amazing 10th birthday party at Follyfoot. Girls ranged in age from 8 and some were quite nervous. They all had a fabulous experience and enjoyed the pony pampering (we wanted to bring Jake home with us!) and riding as well as craft. The staff were great and really built the girls’ confidence. All of this, along with the fabulous countryside, made it a great experience.
“Sophie took care of everything allowing me to enjoy the day with my daughter. Can’t wait for the next birthday, as we will be back for sure.”
“Thanks so much for an amazing party - Jess absolutely loved it as did the other girls; all the parents have texted to say what a wonderful time the children had.” ‘My seven-year-old daughter and her friends had a fantastic time. Even though the weather on the day was terrible, Sophie succeeded in making it a truly memorable event. A great experience and great value for money’.
