Breed: Quarter Horse
of $10,000.00 goal raised
Oprah is a sweetheart of a horse! We love her patience and steadiness with campers of all ages.
Oprah has been a part of the Miracle Ranch herd for more than a decade. During her earlier years she was used as both a trail horse and a lesson horse for more advanced riding students. As our therapeutic riding program grew, we began to run Oprah through various tests to see if she would be a good fit for the program. She passed every test with flying colors.
Not only is Oprah calm and steady when carrying a rider, she is also incredibly patient. Some of our riders require quite a bit assistance when mounting and dismounting their horse. This process can be difficult for some horses who don’t like to stand still at our mounting ramp for a long period of time while the rider is assisted on to the horse. Oprah is one of the horses that our staff can trust to stand still for as long as is needed during the mounting process.
While Oprah can be strong willed when interacting with other horses because she is the lead mare of the herd, we see an incredibly patient and quiet side of her when she is around our campers and riders. When working with her we are reminded that God is both powerful and compassionate.
