Calm Acres at Meadow Creek Farm is an equine facilitated learning facility in Carroll County, Maryland that offers sessions in equine facilitated learning for individuals with a disability as well as members of the community who may not live with a disability. This work has a history of validation by physical therapists, physicians, teachers, and parents as a successful way to help people.  It has been demonstrated that horses have an amazing power to unlock human potential.  We provide an environment where participants can relax, learn, and grow as they interact with this amazing animal.

My name is Teresa Perrera. I bring over 20 years of experience to the program. I have been

certified as an Equine Specialist in Equine Assisted Therapy (eagala.org) and with Greg Kersten's OK Corral Series (okcorralseries.com). I started Calm Acres after I witnessed the profound effect my horses have on individuals with and without a disability.  When I researched other programs in the area I realized that this beneficial service was needed and one that I could provide.  In all that I do with my horses, my goal is always centered on providing a space for people to feel safe, secure, relaxed and calm.  I think I have created that here at Calm Acres.  

About Our Horses
Our horses are safe, quiet and completely tuned in to the individuals they work with.  They are all different breeds, genders and ages.  There is certain to be a horse at Calm Acres to meet the needs of the individual involved in a session.  Our horses are most definitely the Calm Makers at Calm Acres.

Cost
Sessions with the horses are booked in one hour increments.  Each session is billed on a sliding scale.  Scholarships are available.  Please inquire via email for availability and cost.
