Miniature horses are known for their nurturing and friendly nature. That is why they are often used as therapy animals. Being around these horses makes a lot of people happy.
There is a video online showing miniature horses playing and having a good time. They are running around the pasture. They are chasing each other and do not seem to get tired.
The miniature horses are a part of All Star Farm. This is an organization that trains and breeds miniature horses. These horses work as therapy animals at hospitals, day cares, schools, nursing homes and camps. Not only are the horses cute, but they also have natural healing instincts. The professionals at All Star Farm work with the horses to bring out those instincts.
All Star Farm is located in Columbus, Ohio. The professionals make sure that the miniature horses are people-friendly, easy-to-handle and suitable for people of all ages. The horses are gentle.
They are not phased by walkers, beds or wheelchairs. The horses bring smiles to people who are suffering. Most of the horses are bred at All Star Farm. However, the company occasionally brings horses from other farms. The professionals at All Star Farms have trained horses for 22 years.
