My daughter has been going to Celtic Charms for three years now. I cannot begin to explain how wonderful her experiences have been at Celtic Charms. The instructors and volunteers are so patient and understanding. You can see that everyone there loves being there and doing what they do. They have helped my daughter with her attention issues, speech, proprioception, muscle tone, and social skills. I know that without Celtic Charms, my daughter's progress would not be where it is today. They have been an integral part of her growth and success.

I have seen therapeutic riding in several venues and they exceed the others in commitment and dedication. Their attention to detail, coupled with a true caring, nurturing approach creates an experience of true quality.

Our family has been involved with Celtic Charms from the start. We have watched it grow from a
facility, which needed much repair, into a premier riding center ! Our adult daughter, who has a developmental disability, has worked hard on improving her skills on horseback. She has also learned new skills required for carriage driving. On a an issue not related to horses, the owners' dogs helped
her get over her fear of canines. This is wonderful bonus!!!

Thanks to everyone at Celtic Charms!!!
