Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.

96% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

Our organization operates programs involved with horses and other animals.

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.
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.

Horse-related programs:
Equine-assisted activities and therapies ("EAAT") including therapeutic horseback riding, horse rescue and rehabilitation (we rescued three of our lesson horses and we continue to consider rescue horses for our program).

Non-horse-related programs:
We rescue farm animals which so far include a cow, a pig, two ducks, and roosters. We also rescued two barn cats, one dog and a green-cheeked conure. These animals serve our students by inspiring communication and engagement (many of our students are non-verbal).
