Small miniature horses for a big tomorrow
You say the best things come in small packets, and in the case of this enchanting miniature animal, that can only be truth. The miniature horses can actually take part in many different kinds of activity. It can be shown in the palm, can be used to tow a carriage and can even be used as a companion for bigger horses.
However, this horse's way will be a little different. The name Itty Bitty Hospital is apt - at her birthday she set the fastest time for the smallest mare ever conceived according to size and body mass. A miniature animal, the size of her race, is particularly small. She is enchanting and kind and is used every day to make sure she feels good with you.
Hope's owner are planning to make her part of Mini Hooves of Love, a miniature horses treatment series. Watch the videotape and see how little Hope really is. More and more, equestrian treatment is becoming a highly regarded and appreciated form of treatment. Therapeutical horseback rides are one of the most common therapies for horses.
Therapeutical horseback rides can help physically disabled persons, while the act of working and developing a relation with a person with intellectual or development-related handicaps can help. There is a problem: not everyone has easy entry to a barn to take full benefit of the advantages of therapeutic cycling. This is where portable treatment programmes for horses, such as Mini Hooves of Love, come into play.
The miniature horses can go where large horses cannot go, which means that they have easy entry to clinics, colleges, nursing facilities and other areas where patients can profit from it. Minis can also be less overpowering than their bigger pendants, which can help patients unwind and feel more at ease during work.
It may be small, but it will help innumerable men in their futures.
