About Chariot Innovations
We are passionate about transforming lives through movement solutions that help individuals and families achieve a greater quality of life.
Chariot Innovations Inc. is a research-driven company conceived out of Baylor University’s Lab-to-Market (L2M) Initiative. Founded in 2014 by mechanical engineering professor Dr. Brian Garner, our goal is to enhance people’s lives through motion technology inspired by equine therapy. Our innovations are built on a background of research that explores the link between human walking patterns and horseback riding and their resulting physical, cognitive, and psychological benefits.
Inspired by the Bible passage 2 Kings 6:17, the name “Chariot” serves as a symbol of provision, protection, and movement that carries people toward freedom and fullness of life. At Chariot Innovations, we believe God created the human body to move. We are passionate about transforming lives through movement solutions that help individuals and families achieve a greater quality of life.

How the MiraColt was born
Motion. Hope. Life.
Dr. Brian Garner began his research development of the MiraColt after discovering the benefits of the horse motion during various forms of therapeutic horse riding including hippotherapy and equine assisted therapy. He was inspired by the need to address the challenges of people who lacked access to a live horse or could not ride a horse, but could still benefit from the therapy it provided. As a result, the MiraColt was born.
