Animal Science classes got to learn about the importance of therapy animals. Mini horses can be therapy animals with lots and lots of training. Ever After Mini's brought two of their therapy horses to class today.  Students learned about care and training of a therapy horse, they learned about horse behavior and benefits of a therapy animal.  Horses are for people with memory loss.  Often times people make connections with them if they have ever owned a horse before. They cannot be ridden because of their size.  They are only about 120 lbs.  When they are born they are so small you can pick them up and hold them. The presenters told us their favorite part of their job is walking into places and seeing peoples reaction to a horse in a building.
