Claire Oestreich, Certified Therapeutic Equestrian Tai Chi Instructor & Certified Equestrian Tai Chi Instructor Level 1
Hi! My name is Claire Oestreich, and I’m from Southeastern Pennsylvania. I am a life-long lover of horses and happy to be around them in whatever way was possible.
I started my journey of learning with the Delaware County 4-H horse club, where I began riding at the age of 10. I quickly found that I wanted my career path to involve horses, and I took many opportunities in my college years at Lake Erie College to pursue this dream, such as riding in both English and Western disciplines. In my time there, I found that my true passion was in teaching therapeutic riding.
I became a Registered Level PATH Instructor in 2012, now transitioned to the CTRI, and soon after began my career with Special Equestrians in Warrington, PA. With the plan of expanding our center’s programs, I came across Equestrian Tai-Chi. With my background in martial arts (over 20 years of training in Tae Kwon Do), I was eager to participate in something that combined my two passions. As I went through my training and practice, I was so pleased to find that the horses were enjoying the sessions as much as I was!
I am excited to continue this journey of learning with the horses, and I look forward to working with those who are interested in joining me!
