Morning Y'all! I just wanted to find out if anyone knew what steps / procedures are necessary to have a miniature horse certified as a therapy horse? I know there are many different things you have to do to have a dog considered therapy trained...but know nothing about the regulations for horses! I REALLY want to use Cherry as a therapy horse. She's super calm, sweet, & LOVES people!

Any ideas/tips/hints will be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks so much & God bless!

Most institutions that have pet therapy or pet visitation use a national program. Find out from the institutions you want to work with who they use. I tried taking my little one in a couple times but they complained about the "horsey" smell even when he had a good bath before we went. Good luck. The patients loved him.
