Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
To serve children and adults with physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities by providing them with a program of individualized equestrian instruction in a safe and supportive, family farm environment and to provide care for equines previously engaged in therapeutic riding activities and/or for equines in need of assistance due to neglect and/or the inability of previous owners to provide a proper level of care. We provide opportunities for the professional development of our instructors and volunteers as well as ongoing training of our horses for therapeutic horseback riding and equine-assisted activities.
Celtic Charms enriches the lives of children and adults with disabilities by providing them with equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) that improve their physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being. Celtic Charms instructors, who are all PATH Intl. certified, teach horseback riding, equine care, and basic horse anatomy and tack.
We consider rescue horses for our program whenever we can do so within the parameters of our primary mission to serve people with disabilities. Two of our current lesson horses are miniature horses that we rescued, rehabilitated, and trained. We provide excellent care for all our equines, and train them in therapeutic horsemanship and other equine-assisted activities and therapies.
