Calm Acres


Calm Acres at Meadow Creek Farm is an equine assisted learning facility in Carroll County, Maryland that offers sessions in equine assisted work for individuals with special needs. This work has a history of validation by physical therapists, physicians, teachers, and parents as a successful way to help people with physical and developmental disabilities. 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 and I bring over 35 years of experience to the program and am dually certified as an Equine Specialist in Equine Assisted Therapy (eagala.org) and with Greg Kersten's OK Corral Series (okcorralseries.com). I am also the Director of Development at a non-profit located in Carroll County that provides services to individuals with developmental disabilities in Carroll, Howard, Baltimore and Frederick counties. I started Calm Acres after I witnessed the profound effect my horses have on people with special needs. When I researched other programs in the area, I found they were few and far between. I knew that it was a beneficial service that 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.

The mission of Calm Acres is to improve the well-being of individuals with special needs through customized equine experiences.
