Hopes, Hearts, and Horses  




Melissa Morgan

Executive Director of Sugar Creek Equinapy and NARHA Certified Instructor


Melissa began riding at the early age of 4 years old and grew up showing horses. Growing up around horses naturally led to her teaching professionally as well as working in  therapeutic centers.  Unfortunately she injured her back and had to take time off to recover. In 2005 she moved to Missouri from Penssylvania, making great changes to her life by gaining a husband and two stepsons. During this time with her own injury and hurdles, she recalled the healing powers of horses from her past experiences,  so with her family's support, she began riding and teaching again.

She became a  NARHA certified instructor in 2009 with the goal of having her own therapy riding program. In March 2010, Melissa and her husband, Jason, opened Sugar Creek Equinapy to provide horse-assisted therapy to the many who can benefit from it.  She is living her dream and helping others with theirs!
