Carmalee Scarpitti Overcomes Difficult Challenges
Carmalee Scarpitti loves learning. In 2003, it turned her world upside down when she was in an accident with a drunk driver. Badly injured, Carmalee was in a wheelchair for months. Therapy worked to a point, but she need more help. She found a therapeutic riding center, Horses for Hope, and began with one therapeutic riding session a week. Her legs got stronger, her core strength improved too. Her progress was so impressive, she took the leap and got her own horse, Macy.
Carmalee Scarpitti wanted more and searched the internet for articles and videos on horsemanship. her thirst for information was insatiable. She kept studying, riding, and getting stronger. By a lucky draw, while on a trail ride, Camalee won a year membership to Julie Goodnight’s Horsemaster Academy. The program ignited her desire to learn more. She found the program very helpful and wanted to share her experiences with other people. Carmalee completed the Horsemaster Academy in just under a year and no is looking forward to teaching.
Pay It Forward
“Paying back” is a philosophy Carmalee is very passionate about. Whether it the horsemanship knowledge she’s learned over the years, her local 4-H Club, or the therapeutic riding center, Horses for Hope, that help her get her legs back, Carmalee Scarpitti feels it is essential to share her experience.
