Story

Im trying to set up a small company with miniture horses to visit dementia clients / eldery people and adults/children with learning difficulties i already have 1 shetland in training that was abanned which i have rehome from a lovely lady Who saved him!!

I have worked in the care sector for a several years and i believe animal therapy really helps people!!!

It has been proven that touch is a very important aspect in the nourishment of the human mind. Animals bring warmth and contentment into a place (like hospitals) where ordinarily touch is invasive or not pleasant. Equine therapy has proven to be a powerful antidote to the feelings of loneliness, dependency, and isolation often experienced by individuals who are unable to live in their own homes or with family members. Not only does petting an animal reduce your heart rate and blood pressure, it also encourages socialization. In the presence of our ponies, even patients suffering from dementia tend to be less withdrawn and more in touch with their feelings. There is more laughter and interaction among residents and staff when animals are present, and often family members also come to visit on pet therapy day.
