Program: Tammy Stackhouse with Magical Meadows was our speaker. Magical Meadows provides therapeutic horseback riding for special needs adults and children (with physical and/or cognitive disabilities). This includes children with autism and other disabilities, and veterans. Tammy emphasized the healing nature of horseback riding. They have partnered with all the schools in Kosciusko County. Among other examples, she talked about Pierceton Woods where young children “have committed horrible things,” who benefit from a relationship with a horse. She said they find purpose taking care of horses. She said veterans connect with horses and find inner peace. Their new theme this year is “How nature can heal you in so many ways.” The volunteers at Magical Meadows connect not only with the patient, but with the entire family entity. Tammy said if you come to Magical Meadows “I promise you will walk away with a smile on your face!” For more information please go to www.themagicalmeadows.org.
