The Healing Power of Horses for MSers



The founders of The Bina Farm believe horses can help children with disabilities reach their full potential.

By Susan Flynn
Macarthur Sohl spends his days in a wheelchair due to a cruel muscle disease called spinal muscular atrophy. But at the BiNa Farm, the 4 1/2-year-old can climb onto a chestnut-colored horse named Bo and giggle as he looks down on everyone else.

It’s a powerful scene, and one played out repeatedly at the farm, a 2-year-old nonprofit that gives therapeutic riding lessons to children with special needs in Sherborn, at the Dana Hall School in Wellesley and the Massachusetts Hospital School in Canton.

Founded by Coryn Bina, her husband, Babak, a Boston restaurateur, and Terry Snow, a therapeutic riding instructor, the foundation employs 18, serves more than 100 families, and recently opened new headquarters in Natick. In addition to a variety of horse-based therapies, the farm also gives music, drama, yoga, gardening and rock-climbing experiences to children with disabilities, their siblings and their parents.

We recently chatted with Coryn Bina, who was 40 years old – and hooked for life – the first time she rode a horse.
