Celtic Charms Therapeutic Horsemanship
October 22, 2013

Celtic Charms afforded my Adaptive Physical Education students an incredible experience.
We brought our class which has students with ASD, downs syndrome, CP and other physical challenges to Celtic Charms for a class trip. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable and was capable of tending to every specific need of each child. When we arrived at Celtic Charms, we were greeted by a cheerful staff as all of our medical clearance waivers were checked thoroughly. Because we had a larger class, we were divided into three groups. One group attended a tour of the beautiful farm, where we learned about all of the animals and the inter-workings of a horse farm. The second group had a "hands on" petting experience with a pony named "Merlin' as we read him a book.
The third group was taken into the ring to "saddle up" where two very experienced instructors helped alleviate any doubts about getting on a horse as they instructed the students on the necessary basics of riding. Students were able to ride their horse (with walkers) around the ring until they were comfortable enough to go trail riding.
Our students can't stop talking about their trip to Celtic Farms and keep asking when we are going back.
This organization is truly exemplary of what a non profit should be providing for its target group...a beautiful, safe, facility... an experienced, trained staff... and a memory to last a lifetime for it's visitors.
Thank you so much for allowing us to share in the joy of therapeutic horsemanship at its best!
