(WESTON, OH) – Horses can be loved by all, but there is a special connection between a horse and a person with special needs that just cannot be matched.  Here in the Weston community, the Special Horseman Connection provides hippotherapy, competitive showing, equine assisted activities and adapted riding for persons with special needs, regardless if families can pay for it.  Thanks to a matching grant from Robert K. Miller Insurance Agency, Inc. in Grand Rapids and their partner, MutualAid eXchange (“MAX”) Insurance, more individuals with special needs will be able to participate in these equine activities.

Joseph Schroeder heads Robert K. Miller Insurance Agency.  He reached out to Stacey Creps, founder of Special Horseman Connection and customer of his agency, after learning about the MAX Agent Community Grant Program.  “Our agency has sponsored their semi-annual fundraising show in the past,” Schroeder said.  “We as a community are blessed to have such a wonderful organization and are pleased to partner with MAX Insurance® and its community grant program to make this gift possible.”

Robert K. Miller Insurance Agency is an independent insurance agency representing MAX Insurance® in Grand Rapids and surrounding areas.  MAX Insurance®, based in Overland Park, KS, is a unique fair, faithful and socially responsible insurance enterprise.  Founded on religious principles, the company’s mission is to restore wholeness to communities and individuals in need.  It lives out its mission through a variety of quality, fairly-priced insurance products, outstanding personalized customer service and its non-profit Mutual Aid Ministries (“MAM”) program.

“MAX is more than an insurance company.  We truly care beyond the contract,” said David Wine, President and Chief Executive Officer.  “That’s why we are excited to partner with Robert K. Miller Insurance Agency and help the Special Horseman Connection provide hippo-therapy to individuals with special needs.”
