Iconic Schatzlein Saddle Shop In Minneapolis Announces Closure After 115 Years Of Service
News General Equestrian
We have seen other minis advertised as being therapy trained yet there isn't a single picture or video of it showing it doing therapy work at a facility. ALWAYS ask for LOTS of pics of it INSIDE a therapy facility like a nursing home but most importantly ask for video!. If a horse is really therapy trained and has gone on therapy visits there should be proof with pics and video. Every horse we have personally trained has gone on MANY therapy visits and we have lots of pictures as well as videos showing the horse at a nursing home. Unlike other farms, we believe in QUALITY BEFORE QUANTITY. For that reason we only have a few select therapy horses available at any given time as we are very picky on quality, conformation and temperament as that is what we strive for in our therapy program.
We are a small miniature horse farm in South Florida with a wonderful program dedicated to breeding correct, quality sweet natured miniature horses that are 30" and under and training them for therapy work in any kind of establishment such as a Nursing Home, Daycare, School, Camps, Hospitals including VA hospitals, military and more!. We also provide specialty training for mobility and emotional support and many of our minis have gone on to be service horses as well. We also have over 30 years experience with trick training horses and offer that training service as well. Our therapy minis are not only therapy trained but they are trained to live in the house, do obstacle courses, do in hand jumping and some are even broke to drive and do tricks! They are easy to handle, people friendly and are suitable for all ages. They are calm and gentle and are not phased by wheelchairs, beds or walkers. They seem to have natural healing abilities and bring smiles to all those that meet them. We love sharing our gift with others and can help you start your own therapy program with the purchase of one of our Certified Therapy Trained Miniature Horses that are available. All of our minis range from 25" to 29" at maturity FULL GROWN (no dwarves) and we pride ourselves in breeding only quality miniatures, in fact many of ours have gone on to be champions!
