Close to 200 special needs kids had a chance to get an up close look at the Budweiser Clydesdale horses Friday.

The world-famous horses are on hand for the Cajun and Blues Music Festival in Simi Valley this weekend.

The Simi Rotary Club worked with the school district to bring the students to Rancho Santa Susana Community Park.

Event organizers say interacting with the animals stimulates the students' senses and helps their brain activity.
