Pony Pals

​Pony Pals uses miniature therapy horses to visit residents of nursing/residential homes, children's hospices, community centres and nursery schools. We bring a house trained pony into the home for the residents to groom, plait, cuddle, lead (either walking or from a wheelchair) and to tell stories and memories to. The pony is house trained, trained to use a lift and to stand for cuddles. We can help to encourage exercise through grooming, and hand eye coordination through plaiting and threading ribbons in the pony's mane. After meeting the residents in their lounge area, the pony can be taken to meet residents at their bedside, he can even use the lift!
