The Magical Meadows Team

Gentle Hands & Caring Hearts


While growing up, Tammy had a passion for all animals, especially horses, and has owned horses most of her life. In 2007 Tammy began to research Therapeutic Horseback Riding and its benefits following a conversation with the parent of an autistic child. After going through the PATH program, she started using her horse Magic to introduce the young autistic man to horseback riding, and the Magical Meadows was born.

Tammy works creating medical transcriptions for local physicians and currently works for Woodlawn Hospital in Rochester, Indiana.


Pastor Carl Adams first visited the Magical Meadows 10 years ago as a caretaker for two residents of Cardinal Services. After seeing the difference that Magical Meadow’s services made, his passion ignited, and he decided to become involved with the organization.

As the Executive Director, Pastor Carl is in charge of the day-to-day operations. He also enjoys participating in the classes, teaching and encouraging the 2-4-year-olds, and assisting riders as they discover the joy of horseback riding.

Pastor Carl is a resident of New Paris and enjoys spending time with his wife, Elizabeth and their six children, seven grandchildren and two cats.
