Miracles in Motion

Therapeutic Equestrian Center

Summer Is Here and Classes Are in Full Swing


We have 2 summer classes – aptly named Summer 1 and Summer 2! The horses and volunteers are hitting their stride; the arena, grounds, and fence lines look great after the United Way Day of Caring crews spruced things up.


We are now turning our attention to repair and maintenance of our farm house (volunteer training center) and the barn, both of which have some age on them. It seems there is always something needing attention. Luckily we have several handy volunteers (or spouses of volunteers) who are willing to lend a hand, limiting our costs to supplies. If you can help out , here’s a link to donate towards repair projects for the house and barn


Unlike many non-profits, our season is limited, but the horses need to be cared for year round – vet care, senior food, and farrier. Even small amounts given monthly can make a huge difference for us. Please consider $30/month for our 30th year! Join “We Believe in Miracles” for whatever amount works for you.

Miracles in Motion continues to provide programs that build confidence, comfort, strength, and community because of the donors and volunteers that support our efforts. Any amount is welcome and will be used to sustain the miracles we see all the time at Miracles in Motion.  If you would like to help support Miracles in Motion by volunteering, please visit the Volunteer Now page. If you can reinforce our strong foundation with a donation, please see our donation possibilities. Perhaps you can join the monthly donation group We Believe in Miracles. Some of the giving options are:

     * Adopt a Horse for $100/month, $1200/year

     * Provide a rider in need with a scholarship for one session for $225

     * All our horses need senior horse food. Provide one month's food for $50
