Meet the Miracle Makers…
MTRA’s program horses are the literal vehicle through which countless miracles happen every day. The bond between horse and client often grows into something so profound, words are sometimes inadequate to explain it.
At MTRA, we know that this bond, combined with the talent of our instructors, is what paves the way for our clients to achieve things never before dreamed possible… Autistic children speaking for the first time in their lives. Stroke victims regaining mobility and control. Adults with MS relaxing the rigidity in their muscles after years of tightness and inflexibility. Paraplegics who regain core strength to become more independent.
That’s why every one of our program horses are treated with the utmost respect and care. The diversity of our program horses is vast, with breeds ranging from Quarter Horses, buckskins, Paints, an Arabian, Dutch Warmblood and a pony. Additionally, each program horse possesses a distinct personality, as unique as the client they will be meticulously matched with. Yet, they all have key traits in common. They are honest, gentle, patient and sound.
As our list of clients grows, so must our family of program horses. If you are interested in sponsoring a horse, go to our How You Can Help page for more information. If you have a very special horse that you think may have a calling as a therapy horse, please contact our Program Director Pam Morrison.
