Our therapy horses, Stanley and Cricket, visit nursing and assisted living facilities monthly.  The visits encourage socialization and a healthy interaction with animals.  Visiting with animals has proven to decrease blood pressure, increase self-esteem, demonstrate unconditional love and acceptance as well as foster positive thoughts.

Our horses go through extensive training to ensure they are equipped to handle a variety of situations.  The average training time is about 18 months.  We currently have two miniature horses, Stanley and Cricket, that participate in our program.  Calvin, a miniature donkey, will join our team in the next year.

Below are pictues of some of the places we have visited throughout the community.  We have expanded out to other community events as well, such as libraries with our Read With Me program.
