Just Say WHOA® to Bullying
The Just Say Whoa® to Bullying program takes a unique approach to teaching bullying prevention by using mini horses to help children recognize and respect the differences in one another. Children learn acceptance, tolerance, respect and understanding of others.
Animal Assisted Therapy
It has been proven that touch is a very important aspect in the nourishment of the human mind. There are, however, some instances where touch from another human is considered unacceptable for whatever emotional or psychological reason, but the touch of an animal is welcomed. Animals bring warmth and contentment into a place (like hospitals) where ordinarily touch is invasive or not pleasant. 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.
Read With Me
Our mini therapy horses are an incentive, a motivational tool, and a non-judgmental listener – all in one. Get kids excited about your lesson plans, classroom activities, or your library’s reading program when you invite a certified trainer and their mini-horse. Whether you have just a few students needing extra help, or a whole classroom of students eager to practice their skills, a mini horse therapy team can provide just the engagement to get them in a positive mindset and ready to learn.
Walk With Me
Looking for a better way to promote better health and well being in your organization or school? Everyone knows that walking is great exercise. Walking reduces your risk of heart disease and stroke, promotes stronger bones and stronger muscles. Did you know that people who walk with an animal are more likely to meet physical activity recommendations? Our mini horses love to be walked! Teach better physical fitness and raise awareness when you walk next to our mini horses!
Adults need love too! Jobs such as doctors, nurses, attorneys and other high stress jobs take their toll emotionally on todays workers. Mini Horse Therapy can help relieve that stress. When workers spend a few minutes with our minis, their hearts melt a little, their blood pressure goes down a bit, and for just a little while the experience that child-like love and feelings of happiness. Sometimes that’s all they need to take a quick breath, and get ready to endure the stressors of the day. That warmth gets them through the hard times well past the visit. After all, who couldn’t smile at a two foot horse?

Public Safety Visits
Police, Firefighters, Paramedics, EMT’s and Dispatchers are people too! They hurt, they cry, and they feel pain. They see and hear the worst of the worst, and have to deal with the stress that it takes on their bodies, both physically and emotionally.
We love to visit Public Safety departments and organizations to let them know there is still love in the world! We visit stations, family day outings, and other events to support our First Responders.
