At C2 It, LLC, horses are the helpers. The camp can be seen in Atlantan Magazine and the Atlanta Parent Magazine as Best Horse and Outdoor Education Camp in Atlanta since 2007. The facility has safely offered equine-assisted therapies with a 5:1 camper-to-coach ratio to kids and teens with multiple sclerosis, autism, Down Syndrome, and many other educational adventures. Primary school teachers lead creative art classes, and professional instructors lead groups through fun games and skills courses with horses. A pair of highly qualified professionals oversee these programs, including Caroline Jaffee, who is nationally certified through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International.
The facility's human staff joins forces with therapeutic horses, each of which goes through extensive training and must present a squeaky-clean criminal record before joining the C2 It team. Once on the relaxed, secluded property, the well-tempered steeds serve as both physical and mental therapists, helping special-needs visitors increase their strength, improve their motor skills, and build personal relationships.
