It is the policy of Miracles in Motion to preserve the right of confidentiality for all individuals in the program. This policy applies to all volunteers, staff, board members, participants and anyone who might obtain confidential or sensitive information.


Access to student forms on file is restricted to staff, instructors, and therapists. Pertinent information will be given to volunteers working in the class on a need to know basis by the instructor, program specialist or therapist without reference to diagnosis. After each class or session, the instructor or therapist will ask the Horse Leader and Sidewalkers (volunteers) to discuss each student’s ride. With this feedback, the instructor or therapist is able to make any changes necessary to make their ride the best possible experience, providing optimal therapeutic benefits to that student. All volunteers, staff, board members, and participants shall keep confidential all medical, social, personal and financial information, as well as student evaluations, individual goals and progress, and referrals regarding a person and his/her family.


Miracles in Motion may disclose medical and/or sensitive information to agents and outside health care providers involved in therapy only with the specific written consent from the rider. Informed consent for disclosure may be given only by competent adults, parent(s), legal representatives and others defined by state statue. In case of emergency, student forms will be made available as needed to appropriate personnel.


Personal and professional penalties that can result from breaching confidentiality will include reprimand, with the potential loss of job responsibilities, and may ultimately lead to termination from this organization.


I understand and agree to observe the confidentiality policy of Miracles in Motion Therapeutic Equestrian Center.



I have chosen to be on the property where Miracles in Motion holds equestrian classes & activities, and will be in proximity of, and possibly work with and/or ride the horses, may receive riding instruction and/or assist with property maintenance. I assume full responsibility for any and all bodily injuries or damages sustained where classes/activities are held, when riding horses and/or when maintaining the property. I understand that Miracles in Motion requires me to wear properly fitted and secured ASTM-standard/SEI certified protective headgear at all times when riding horses.


I, for my heirs, administrators, personal representatives or assigns, release and discharge Miracles in Motion Therapeutic Equestrian Center and its employees, agents, board of directors, volunteers, instructors and others acting on behalf of all claims resulting from or arising out of my bodily injury or damage that may be sustained which may occur as a result of being on the Miracles in Motion property.

I understand that anyone riding or near a horse can suffer bodily injuries, as a number of inherent risks are associated with a domesticated animal activity. A domesticated animal, horse, may behave in a manner that results in damages to property or an injury or death to a person. Risks associated with the activity may include injuries caused by bucking, biting, stumbling, rearing, trampling, scratching, pecking, falling, or butting. The domesticated animal may react unpredictably to conditions, including, but not limited to, a sudden movement, loud noise, an unfamiliar environment, or the introduction of unfamiliar persons, animals, or objects. The domesticated animal may also react in a dangerous manner when a condition or treatment is considered hazardous to the welfare of the animal; a collision occurs with an object or animal; or a participant fails to exercise reasonable care, take adequate precautions, or use adequate control when engaging in a domesticated animal activity, including failing to maintain reasonable control of the animal or failing to act in a manner consistent with the person’s abilities.


It is mutually understood and agreed that the provision of this liability release shall constitute a waiver of liability for injury to, or death of an equine activity participant, including, but not limited to those provided for under the following provisions of the Iowa Code Chapter 673:


Under Iowa law, a domesticated animal professional is not liable for damages suffered by, an injury to, or the death of a participant resulting from the inherent risks of domesticated animal activities pursuant to Iowa Code Chapter 673. You are assuming inherent risks of participating in this domesticated animal activity.


I represent that I am 18 years of age or older, and of sound mind. I have read and agree to all of the terms of this entire liability release and indemnity agreement.

All parts of this agreement shall apply to me, and the children/legal wards listed above. This agreement is binding when I enter the property where Miracles in Motion holds classes/activities for any purpose, when I am near horses on the premises, and/or if I receive riding instruction.
