Manes & Miracles is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization. We provide therapeutic riding, hippotherapy, and aquatic therapy to those with a wide diversity of physical, cognitive, mental and emotional disabilities.

Horseback riding mimics the human gait, therefore the rider shows improvement in posture, muscle control, sensory motor skills, balance, and much more. Internally the rider makes progress towards self-awareness, self-confidence, self-discipline, and concentration. The horses' legs become those of the rider, giving them a feeling of freedom and mobility that they are unable to experience in other aspects of their lives. Almost always, these riders and animals establish a very strong bond allowing the rider to experience unconditional love, trust, and self-worth.


Our Facility

At Manes and Miracles, a comprehensive treatment plan is developed that integrates the movement of the horse with traditional speech, physical, and occupational therapy treatment strategies to that therapeutic goals are achieved. We will offer a covered arena, a sensory trail, sensory/motor playground, trampolines, swings, zip line, aquatic therapy, and an indoor therapy clinic.


Our Mission: To provide equine-assisted therapy to people with disabilities and provide an enviornment where opportunity replaces limitation and children and adults learn the power of the words "I can".

Our Vision: The vision of Manes & Miracles is to provide hippotherapy and adaptive riding for 90 - 100 patients weekly in a state of the art researched based therapy facility.

Romans 8:28 - And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

As a nonprofit organization we rely heavily on the generosity of caring individuals and service groups.
