A Little Magic

                                  Miniature Therapy Horses

A Little Magic is a group of trained volunteer helpers and handlers and their trained and experienced miniature horses who provide animal assisted educational activities for children, teens  and adults who could benefit from these activities.

Our teams all pass the required test for handlers with Pet Partners. This is a national organization that screens, tests and registers handlers and their animals for animal assisted activities. Our therapy teams, pictured below, have passed the required coursework and all horses have passed an evaluation by a Pet Partners team to assure that their training and temperaments are suitable for therapy work.  In addition to this our horses are housebroken to insure a pleasant indoor visit from our teams. Our handler teams are always accompanied by a trained volunteer helper to be an extra pair of hands to facilitate the visit or event.

We are available to visit the ill, the elderly, special needs classes/camps, rehabs and the like. We serve children, teens and adults in Virginia in the Warrenton and Culpeper areas as well as the surrounding counties. Please contact us for more information about how we can enrich your facility or class with educational activities or simply a special visit from a miniature horse to brighten the day! Horses are very intuitive and therefore very comforting to the people who interact with them. There are always lots of smiles from everyone!  They actually do bring "a little magic" wherever they go!

Besides the above work that we do with our miniature therapy horses, part of our mission is education about horses, miniature horses and the aspects of therapy that they can provide.
 For that reason we welcome requests from area Girl Scout troops, 4-H programs and the like.
