Hello, Inspire Families!

We hope that you find information below which will enrich your homeschool journey!

Inspire Love Thank You!

Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness towards foster children in our area! We were able to compile and deliver 70 journey bags for elementary children in the foster care system. The foster family agencies were delighted to receive them and were eager to deliver them to the children in their care.


Thank you for sewing the bags, bringing the toys, coloring books, toothbrushes and more to fill them up and thanks to you who were able to come and assemble our bags on Valentine’s Day. We appreciate you all!

Vendor Spotlight

Alves Equestrian - In the foothills near Merced

Hello everyone! My name is Tracy Alves of Alves Equestrian, www.alvesequestrian.net and I'm so very grateful to be a part of enriching children's lives. I have worked under some very well rounded horse trainers and instructors for many years. Having ridden horses for over 25 years and currently riding professionally achieving some successful accomplishments such as a 2018 National Title as well as 2 state titles in 2015 and 2016, I'm looking forward to sharing my knowledge with you all. I moved to the area in October of 2017 and absolutely love it. My lesson horses are experienced, kind and fantastic teachers for beginners as well as those with experience. I offer all abilities and levels as well as a choice of English or Western lessons. A saddle does not dictate our relationship with our partners; our learning and commitment to continue learning are what is most important.


I received my Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies with a Minor in Child Development in 2010 from CSU Stanislaus. I decided that I would love to share my time with students outside of the classroom, therefore have recently begun building my own lesson program here at home in La Grange, an average of 30 minutes from Merced. After all, it makes sense to combine my two passions together. I'm looking forward to having regular sessions with you and will be working on having summer camps as well. Thank you very much for your support. I can't wait to meet you all! Inspire Students receive a discount for services of $35 per session. I am insured and you can find me as a vendor on the Inspire site. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, talk to you soon!
