Mini Hooves of Love miniature horses and volunteers are dedicated to providing therapeutic animal assisted visits. It is our mission to give people the opportunity to interact with a miniature horse to enhance their quality of life.
Miniature Horse Therapy
Animal assisted activities (AAA)
Animals bring warmth and contentment into a place (like hospitals) where ordinarily touch is invasive or not pleasant. Studies show that nursing homes and assisted living housing communities can benefit greatly from pets as therapy animals. Not only does petting an animal reduce your heart rate and blood pressure, it also encourages socialization.
When our minis aren’t hard at work making people smile, they are sleeping and eating in a barn at night and graze and play in the pasture during the day, just like all horses should! Find out what the life of a Miniature Therapy Horse is like when they are not on duty.
