Testimonials

Therapeutic Riding has given Michael much more confidence when asked to try new things. He feels very special when he's riding and it's really the boost that he needs.
Mary Ellen S., Westminster, CO


Erin's riding lessons at Horses Make Miracles have helped her become independent and focused. She is much more in control because she's had to take control when handling and riding her pony.
Patty H., Thornton, CO

Horseback Riding lessons have been like an open door to me when so many other doors have been closed because of my disability and limitations.

Since starting classes at Horses Make Miracles, Linda has provided Karen with thoughtful supportive observations encouraging her strengths rather than her physical challenges all in a safe and fun atmosphere.
Anne B., Longmont, CO

Linda possesses a wealth of knowledge about "horses as healers" which she has learned through decades of teaching to countless riders with various disabilities.
Betty T., Boulder, CO

Working with the Instructors and Volunteers at Horses Make Miracles, I've come to realize a new dimension of Therapeutic Riding as a successful and positive treatment modality. I gained a great amount of knowledge from Linda's years of experience.
Valerie K., Winter Park, CO


I recently had to move out of Colorado and I'm now in New Jersey.  I hope to return to CO someday.  While at Horses Make Miracles, it was a pleasure to work with Linda and share her knowledge, talents and equine therapy programs. Keep up the magnificent job you're doing.  I miss the horses and staff there.
Kindly, RaVen & Ziggy


“Linda is a wonderful person to have as a mentor.  She provides thoughtful observations about strengths and areas for improvement, while being very supportive.  She highlights safety and things that are important for PATH certification.  My favorite thing about working with Linda was her ability to offer guidance while still letting me work independently.”      Catharine W., Boulder, CO / PATH Certified Instructor 2011
 
“Linda possesses a wealth of knowledge about “horses as healers” which she has learned through decades of teaching to countless riders with various disabilities.  As her Intern, she taught me exceptional teaching techniques, and gave me the moral support and confidence I needed to become a certified instructor.”      Betty T., Boulder, CO / PATH Certified Instructor 2009      

“Interning with Linda had helped me open my eyes to a new dimension of Therapeutic Riding as well as able bodied riding.  I had volunteered at other Therapeutic Riding centers but never got the full explanation of therapeutic techniques, lesson plans and ideas for working with the students, as well as excellent guidance on natural horsemanship.  I gained a great amount of knowledge from Linda as well as her staff which helped me through the process of passing my PATH exam.”    Valerie K., Winter Park, CO / PATH Certified Instructor 2011 

“I will always be grateful for all Linda's help mentoring and getting me started and finding me my first therapy horse; Sundae.  When I went for my PATH Riding Instructor certification in Lime, CT the PATH representatives were very impressed how I handled mounting and dismounting from the ramp.  They couldn’t believe how I never lost physical contact with the riders.  They asked where I had learned my techniques – I was quick to answer Linda Raulino; my friend and mentor.”       Roberta D., Seekonk, MA / PATH Certified Instructor l996
