Newest MVECS Buckle Recipients, May 2019

On Sunday, May 5th, Miracles was extremely proud to present MVECS (Military Veterans Equine Care Squad) Buckles to two of our distinguished Veteran students.This presentation included a "first" for MVECS.Our first female recipient is Kim Phillips. Rodney Brewer and Kim both received the MVECS Buckle. 

Our buckle program is for those who want to really "buckle" down and show their interest in horses.They are required to complete the class, volunteer at least 25 hours at the farm and pass an extensive written and practical test with a score of at least 95%.Much like a skills badge in the military, this is something that must be EARNED.Less than 1/3 of our students have actually earned the right to wear the buckle and they do so with pride.

Both of our students are Army vets.The buckles were presented by Ken Manley, founder of the MVECS program.

My daughter, who has Down syndrome, has been riding with Miracles in Motion for several years.

It is amazing that working to ride and care for a horse is not only therapeutic but also improves her skills and development. Through Miracles, we have seen her muscle tone, coordination, attention, and speech improve.

The great strides in endurance and strength have enabled her to participate more in her peers' activities of running, jumping, and playing.
