Designed by Darriel G. Mathis Designs, the new Manes & Miracles Equine-Assisted Therapy Center, Barn and Arena will be built on a 30.66-acre area at Chaffee Crossing north of Arkansas 22 and east of Barling and will provide services to children with special needs and veterans with a wide range of physical, mental, cognitive and emotional disabilities, said Jodi Kusturin, executive director and a physical therapist for Manes & Miracles. The 501 (c)(3) nonprofit center will specialize in therapeutic riding, hippotherapy and aquatic therapy to area children and veterans, she said."
