Small but Mighty Miniature Horses Offer Therapy and Hope
Herman Melville states that horses and dogs are the sole thinkers who fully understand humans. “They stare at all of us and can see through us.”
Through their therapeutic work, these creatures repeatedly proved the value of such understanding. However, one example is a group of nearby miniature therapy horses whose scale cannot judge their effectiveness.

Meet Some Small horses:
They were American miniature horses representing Mane in Heaven’s biggest draw. As the president of Mane in Heaven, Dina Moore, said, “They’re hardly intimidating, they are little, and they look magical.” “We visit hospitals, rehabilitation centres, and care homes with our charming tiny mini therapy ponies. The goal and mission are to give those struggling a little joy, pleasure, and happiness.

Mane in Heaven, some all group headquartered at a private farm in Barrington, was founded in 2012. “We work with the horses four days per week,” the director of programming, Danielle McCready, said.

If we are not on a visit, we are training there because we carry out both kinds of training as well as visits. The minis learn commands like “walk,” “whoa,” and “visit” as a part of their training. They are taught to put up with it being petted, caressed, and exposed to loud environments.

One of the subjects that individuals inquire about with Mane in Heaven volunteers is when they are taught to walk in custom footwear.

They do prevent children from slipping on the ground, according to Morgan. “(They’re) also effective in preventing illnesses. Furthermore, they have a cute appearance.

No, they have not yet shrunk down to address a few other frequently asked questions. They are not ponies, no. But they are fully grown. Morgan laughed, “We believe they might even get wider; however, they certainly won’t even get taller.

Joy, Spirit, & Winnie were allowed to relax in their pasture the day we met Mane in Heaven’s five horses at the farm, while Tinkerbell and Hope took their carriage minibus of class and drove to Shriners Hospitals of Children in Oak Park.

Morgan cannot even express how gratifying it is to visit a maternity ward or a class and witness these huge smiles, broad people, and laughing.
