Miniature Horse Therapy
When I was 16-years-old, I saw a picture of a miniature horse in a nursing home and dreamed of providing that type of therapy myself in the future. Some years went by, but I still had this dream. At the age of 24, I found the opportunity to buy two miniature horses, Speedy and Junior. Even though they are small, they have done some great things! I have been taking them to visit nursing homes for 3 years now, after my full-time hours in another occupation. We have had elderly people who have started to cry because they never thought they would see a horse again and some who have not spoken for weeks have started to talk again. We have had so many good moments that it would take all day to write them. We are just trying to make a difference by giving some of our time doing acts of kindness in my home town in Norway. The elderly woman is this picture loved Junior so much that when she died her family mentioned Junior at her funeral.
