Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Mini Therapy Horses is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit charity based in Southern California. Every year, our teams of highly trained miniature therapy horses and volunteers provide equine assisted therapy to thousands of children and adults who are in crisis, suffering from emotional and physical trauma, or going through medical procedures. Research has shown that experiences with horses can help regulate blood pressure, decrease feelings of loneliness and depression, reduce stress and anxiety, and provide a positive motivating stimulus.
Mini Therapy Horses is dedicated to promoting positive human-equine interactions to improve the physical, social, emotional, and psychological lives of the at risk children and adults we serve.
Since 2009, we have been visiting a wide variety of hospitals and facilities in order to facilitate these interactions. Our teams visit UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center, Shriners for Children Medical Center, the Greater Los Angeles Veterans' Hospital, Department of Children and Family Services Juvenile Court, Ronald McDonald Houses, schools, and libraries. We are on-call 24/7 as members of the Los Angeles Mayor’s Crisis Response Team, providing immediate support to those involved in traumatic events. In addition, Mini Therapy Horses also provides private sessions with individuals at our facility.

Our organization conducts Equine Assisted Services (EAS) in accordance with the EQUUS Foundation Guidelines on Qualifications of Organizations Conducting Equine-Assisted Services (EAS).
Our organization provides community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses.
