Inspiration Ranch expands, adds Resource Center in Montgomery County
Inspiration Ranch has announced that they will be relocating to a new ranch by June 1, 2019.
Panther Creek Inspiration Ranch, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and a Premiere Accredited Center through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.), offers equine therapy programs in a loving Christian environment, breaks down barriers, and celebrates the inclusion of individuals with physical, emotional, and social disabilities. Their Therapeutic Riding Program serves children with, but not limited to Autism, Attention Deficit Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delay, Downs Syndrome, Hearing and Vision Impairment, Learning Disabilities, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, and Speech Delay.
In the wake of substantial growth to both the Therapeutic Riding and Mental Health Programs waiting lists as well as the chronic and persistent flooding off Glen Loch Drive, Spring, TX, Inspiration Ranch will relocate 7 miles West of Woodlands Parkway and FM 2978 in Montgomery County.
The new ranch, located at 33029 Wright Rd, Magnolia will not only continue to serve Inspiration Ranch’s two primary initiatives: Therapeutic Riding and Mental Health Program – but will enhance them. The additional acreage will allow for expansion of both programs by providing more space for increasing the herd of horses, serving more clients, and provide privacy. Most importantly, this new facility will allow Inspiration Ranch to reduce the current wait list of 48 children dramatically. Existing clients will continue to have lessons at the Glen Loch Drive location throughout the relocation process.
“We are excited to expand our footprint and therapies to include the Tomball and Magnolia communities,” said Inspiration Ranch President & CEO, MG Tindall. “We have experienced significant flooding at our current location that forced us to put a hold on our strategic growth plan. Now, God has truly blessed us with 40-acres that will not only allow for the much-needed growth but is located at one of the highest points in Montgomery County!”
The new ranch will be home to a Resource Center which will hold staff offices, seminars, and be a multi-purpose center to allow for community and family engagement. The expanded Mental Health space will provide the privacy required while working with at-risk youth and individuals seeking to overcome physical and emotional trauma. The new Family Center will offer a safe climate-controlled location for our families to rest while still being engaged in their child’s therapeutic riding session.
Inspiration Ranch relies on the generosity of donors and corporate gifts to fund its programs and resources. Join us for an Open House on Sunday, April 7th 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Tour our new property located at 33029 Wright Rd, Magnolia, TX 77355, learn more about opportunities for collaboration, involvement, and volunteerism.
