Miracle Horse Riders, Inc. is a non-profit organization formed to provide services to the disabled in the West Central Minnesota area. They provide therapeutic horse riding in a safe and professional environment.
Miracle Horse Riders strives to improve the quality of life for the disabled through the use of animals. They are partially funded by the Douglas County United Way, private and corporate contributions, and through riders’ fees and fundraisers.
Leadership Alexandria is a nine-month educational program of the Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce, Alexandria Technical and Community College, and the West Central Initiative Fund. Its purpose is to enhance participants’ leadership skills while familiarizing them with the community, its rich history and all that it has to offer today.
Community leaders serve as instructors for the program, which begins with a two-day retreat in September, then meets one day per month for nine months. The program also includes a trip to Business Day at the State Capitol. Graduation takes place in early May.
