Why Miniature Horse Therapy?

  • Socialization – When animals come to visit a facility/school, there is more laughter and interactions among everyone.
  • Physical Contact – The touch of an animal is safe, non-threatening, and pleasant.
  • Empathy – It is easier to teach children to be empathetic with an animal than with a human.
  • Connection – Rather than thinking and talking about themselves and their problems, they focus on the animals.
  • Interest – Even people who don’t like animals often enjoy watching their antics and reactions.
  • Acceptance – Animals help present an air of emotional safety. Their acceptance is non-judgmental, forgiving, and uncomplicated.
  • Mental Stimulation – Animals help increase communication with others, help with memory recall and provide entertainment.
  • Introspection – Many people relax when animals are present.
  • Nurturing – The minis are very caring, warm-hearted beings.
  • Interesting – Minis are fun to be around!

Hear What Others Are Saying

Discover the profound impact of our work firsthand as individuals share their heartfelt stories and experiences, highlighting the transformative power of our initiatives.

Cooper had one of the best nights of his life last night when he got to visit the farm at ddsmiracleminis. I had tears in my eyes the whole time as I watched him interact with the animals by feeding them, brushing them, walking them, and even kissing them. I will admit that a highlight for me was watching him shovel horse poop and then comment on the smell, so let’s hope that maybe helps with his own potty training. 💩

Cooper's Mom Sarasota, FL

Lindsey's impact on our family is immeasurable. For almost two years, she's provided speech therapy to my neurodivergent 5-year-old daughter, and the change has been incredible. Beyond her exceptional speech therapy skills, Lindsey's genuine love for her young patients and her passion for animals create a unique and inspiring environment.
Her infectious positivity and unwavering optimism enhance therapy outcomes. Initially non-verbal with frequent, lengthy tantrums, my daughter now engages in conversations, expresses her needs, and peacefully interacts with her siblings.
Lindsey's influence goes beyond speech and behavior; it extends to our entire family. We can't adequately express our gratitude for her transformative impact and unwavering support.
