Miracle Meadows offers programs ten months each year, providing nearly 1,200 therapeutic riding hours. Volunteers donate over 3,000 hours of their time annually.

To a child or adult with a physical, developmental or emotional disability, life can look a lot brighter on horseback. The power and warmth of the horse strengthens and tones muscles, improves balance, head control and coordination, builds self-esteem, and offers a sense of freedom and equality.

At Miracle Meadows, our progam incorporates physical therapy, unconditional love gained in the human/horse relationship, and freedom and mobility that our riders cannot experience limited to a wheelchair or walking aides. The feeling of achievement and control that comes from riding and maneuvering a 1,000 to 1,200 pound horse is strong medicine, replacing self-doubt with self-confidence.

When a potential rider enters the therapeutic riding setting for the first time, he or she receives an evaluation. Riding Center personnel consult with medical and educational professionals closest to each client and then design a program to meet that rider's needs.

Some of our programs address:
  • Medical needs in which the horse becomes a tool for physical therapy,
  • Developmental needs, utilizing the horse as a tool for sensory integration,
  • Emotional needs in which the horse is used as a conduit for bonding and interpersonal relationships,
  • Educational needs, wherein the horse becomes the motivation for fulfillment of the client's Individualized Educational Program (IEP).
