Bringing joy to you!
Our Pony therapy visits have changed!
Due to the pandemic, our services were halted and doors were closed, this means that our therapy ponies had no off-yard visits for over two years! A long time for a pony. Because of this, we have to make sure our ponies are reintroduced to busy, loud indoor spaces gradually again. To make sure this happens we have made the following changes to our pony therapy service
Sessions will be held in outdoor spaces at your organisation
Pony therapy visits will only be available on a Monday, Tuesday & Friday
Why Pony Therapy?
The Alzheimer’s Society has discussed the positive impact that animals have on people living with dementia. Animals can soothe & relieve anxiety and can help to improve their quality of life.
A number of small-scale studies suggest that time spent with animals in care homes can have positive effects on people with dementia. For example, spending time visiting animals has been shown to reduce blood pressure and anxiety, and improve social interaction and sleeping patterns. It can also reduce late-afternoon restlessness.
