Every horseman knows the relationship with a horse is special. For those with mental or physical disabilities or in the recovery process, this relationship can open the door to an entirely new realm of possibilities.
Horse and human become partners in a therapeutic relationship, offering a multitude of opportunities to focus on abilities instead of disabilities, and a sense of ease rather than disease.
Countless participants have overcome physical and emotional barriers through Quantum’s therapeutic programs. In their sessions, the focus is not on weaknesses, but strengths, not battles, but victories. The Quantum mission centers on recognizing the fact that having an injury or a disability may change the way you experience life, but it doesn’t change who you are.
Analagous to the “special relationships” formed between horsemen and their horses are the remarkable special relationships enjoyed by Quantum Leap Farm across the Tampa Bay Community and beyond. This trail has now led to the forming of special “Pegasus Partnerships” – bringing value to the Farm and to each special Partner, as presented below!
A Special Arrangement
Carrollwood Florist is a full-service Tampa florist and takes pride in providing their customers with quality flowers, artfully designed arrangements and gifts for all occasions. As a Christian family owned and operated business for over 25 years, they find no greater joy than serving the community that has served them for the past two decades.
Flowers are the finishing touch to every occasion, both somber and sweet. They’re the warmth and personality of the room, a touch that sets a good event apart from a great event. Which is why the expert floral design team takes extra care to ensure delivery of a very special arrangement.
In partnership with Quantum Leap Farm, Carrollwood Florist has created a special “Pegasus” Arrangement, with a portion of each purchase donated to the Farm to provide restorative equine-assisted therapies to military veterans and special needs children and adults. Order your Arrangement below – help empower these individuals to “spread their wings.”
Tampa’s families have relied on Newsome’s Studio of Photography to record the milestones of their life for many years. Begin your own tradition by having a portrait of your children or family by Newsome’s Studio today.
In partnership with Odessa’s Quantum Leap Farm, and their mission to bring Equine-Assisted Therapy to children and adults with special needs, wounded veterans, military service members, children with cancer, and their family members, Newsome’s Studio of Photography will proudly donate your $150 location session fee to the QLF cause, for every family or high school senior session that we photograph at the Quantum Leap Farm facility.
QLF has generously offered their beautiful 20 acres of horse pasture, barn, stables, and facilities as a backdrop for creating a once-in-a-lifetime family or senior portrait by Newsome’s. Contact Newsome Studios below if you’re interested in having your family or senior portrait made at Quantum Leap Farm – for your benefit, and for the benefit of Quantum Leap Farm!
