I recently posted a book review of Riding Home, the Power of Horses to Heal by Tim Hayes. I know that many people are familiar with the idea of dogs who visit people in hospital but horses? There are videos of mini horses who visit hospitals and care homes but a full sized horse? Here is a link to the video about Peyo, a stallion, who goes twice a month with his handler to hospital to help and comfort the sick and the dying. Please watch it on full screen so you can see the subtitles. You will not regret seeing this horse.

My horse’s previous owner took him to senior centers. I had an aged friend come to visit him. I was a little worried because…well, I nicknamed him Saucy Baggage for a reason. She was in her 90s and took frail and small with her walker. My fidgeter stood perfectly still and let her move around him. I love the above video.
