The Magical Meadows Team

Gentle Hands & Caring Hearts

Tammy Stackhouse

Tammy grew up just around the corner from Magical Meadows on a farm where her love for horses began early. After high school, she began working in the medical field for 30 years. In 2007, she was approached by the family of a young man with autism asking if he could meet her horses. After researching the connection with horses and people with different abilities, she began the journey of what is now the Magical Meadows.

Tammy enjoys walks on the beach, boat rides, photographing sunsets, and spending time in nature. She is blessed to have one amazing son, Adam, who lives in the area.
