Donate now to get our students BACK IN THE SADDLE!

The Reservoir Farm is an oasis for the students at Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital. It is here that they find freedom from their physical limitations and can just be kids. They are surrounded by a menagerie of loving, gentle farm animals and are free to exercise in the fresh air, away from hospitals, doctors office, and therapy rooms. Being at Reservoir Farm helps promote a sense of well-being, self confidence and a fresh perspective on life for all of our students.

Pappas began its therapeutic riding program with a pilot program in the summer of 1982 and the number of students it serves has been increasing ever since. The hospital now offers therapeutic riding and carriage driving programs as well as therapeutic and educational activities with the farm animals not only to its own students, but to individuals within the greater Canton community.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Reservoir Farm had to shut down all of the activities it provides for the students and to the community. To say the least, the students were devastated that they weren’t able to go riding and interact with the farm animals. Staff were concerned about the growing number of students expressing deep sadness and loss over the fact that they could not participate in the activities offered by the farm.

But now, with warmer weather on its way and with the success of the vaccine roll out at Pappas, the farm is gearing up for a new season of riding and activities! Our riding programs and the barn are in need of some new equipment and supplies such as:

  • Therapeutic riding saddles
  • Saddle Pads/Saddle Blankets
  • Bridles
  • Stirrups and Stirrup leathers
  • Riding Helmets
  • Curtains to cover the entry ways into the barns

A donation from you, of ANY AMOUNT, will help provide the funding we need to purchase the equipment and supplies that will get our students BACK IN THE SADDLE!

Please consider making a donation to The Campaign for Reservoir Farm!

Our students will appreciate it more than you'll ever know!

THANK YOU!
