Mission Statement

Agape cultivates personal growth by strengthening the mind, body, and spirit through unique horse-facilitated experiences.

Description

Our Beginnings

Agape is a Greek word that means "unconditional love". Cheryl Miller and her daughter Dawn were called to share unconditional love when they expanded their enjoyment of horses and love for children by developing a summer riding program for children with disabilities using the therapeutic value of horses to rehabilitate.

As a result of parents’ requests and therapists who witnessed the summer success, Cheryl and Dawn founded Agape in 1986, but they continued to dream of a year round program. That dream became a reality following Dawn’s tragic death in 1992. After seeking God’s guidance, a farm just north of Indianapolis in Cicero, Indiana was selected for the start of a therapeutic riding center. In March of 1994, Cheryl established a full-time program, serving individuals and schools throughout central Indiana.
