Jet

Thoughts about Jet, a beloved horse who died suddenly at the end of 2023.

Regardless of age or circumstance, we never have enough time with our horses. For many of us, Jet was one of the most special Miracles’ horse, greeting you in the field, approaching you when called, nickering and whinnying with greeting.

He was extremely hard-working, even-tempered and patient. This made him an ideal horse in all of our programs and a favorite to many of our riders. The white question mark blaze on his face helped many identify him. His gentle ways won over even the most timid riders. 

Jet was hard-working, even when he’d rather be out in the pasture with his buddies. A regular in Adaptive Riding and Hippotherapy, he gave his all to each class and shared his heart with each rider. Jet knew how to connect, how to strengthen each rider, how to heal. Not all horses have that power. Jet was a true ambassador to the mission of Miracles.

You can make a donation to honor Jet.
