Review for Celtic Charms Therapeutic Horsemanship , Howell, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

About us: Since its founding in 1995, The School for Children with Hidden Intelligence (SCHI) has grown to become a world-renowned, cutting-edge therapeutic and educational center meeting the unique needs of over 600 severely-disabled, medically fragile, and socially-emotionally challenged children & young adults ranging in age from birth to 21+. As a state-approved organization, specifically educating multiply handicapped & underprivileged children & adults from throughout the Tristate region & beyond, SCHI’s aim is to try and alleviate the suffering of the most vulnerable members of the community.
Celtic Charms continues to be absolutely instrumental in helping us to achieve our goals with our severely handicapped students. Specifically, we continue to note remarkable improvements in our student’s posture, (via improved trunk muscle strength), their confidence, and their motivation to try and participate in new experiences. We continue to note that many of our students initiated their sessions at Celtic Charms with great fear and anxiety, but now look forward to the trip and all of the aspects of their weekly experience.
Additionally, our educational and therapeutic staff has noticed that whether our student rides a horse or receives a ride in the horse drawn cart, they are markedly calmer after their experience. With other students, it has been discussed that their trips to Celtic Charms have increased their verbal skills by bolstering their self-confidence, and allowing them to take on a new role of caretaker since they now can assist with brushing and grooming the horses. We can't thank Celtic Charms Therapeutic Horsemanship for all that they have done and continue to do for our special needs students!
