First and foremost let us at Cavalli Foundation wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
As always the number one priority at Cavalli is the health and well-being of our rescue animals. At the moment they’re taking their supplements recently delivered from Germany to offset sniffles, upset tummies, aches and pains and, in general, to help them through the winter cold spell; our aim being to make sure they are healthy and happy.
Halloween was amazing; the best event of the year. The kids had a great time and the animals all joined in with their usual enthusiasm. The next best event of the year is Christmas which is just around the corner. Plans are now being made for the Christmas Camp and Party.
Provisional dates for the holiday Pony Club days are as follows: 24th, 26th, 27th, 28th and 31st December; 2nd, 3rd and 4th January with two possible Camps, the first on 6th, 7th and 8th December; the second being 2nd, 3rd and 4th January.
At the beginning of November Cavalli Therapy Team gave a talk in the Casa de Cultura of Alhama Council to explain the extension of their current project, (Grants from Alhama Social Services to continue the good work started earlier this year) – Horse Assisted Therapy for small children with learning difficulties from the Early Learning Development section. Present at the talk were the Mayoress of Alhama, Director of Social Services and the Psychologist of the Early Learning Development section. Parents and members of the Council are very happy with the results so far and are thrilled to be able to continue this service to the public.
Cavalli Foundation President, Veronica Campillo Knowles and Education Expert, Reina Candeal Esteban, have just taken part in the presentation of projects for the annual distribution of public funds.
Animal Chat is an interesting Cavalli proposition to promote an animal-assisted language interchange between Spanish people and English speaking residents in the region. Amongst the other projects presented by Cavalli are:
Horse Assisted Therapy for women who have suffered gender related violence
ABC Canino an aid to learning to read and write using the help of our dogs.
Animal Assisted Interaction between the elderly and school children.
A wonderful end to a very special year, 2018!
