Miniature Therapy Horses
MagicEquus Miniature Horse Stud is truly unique in whole Europe as we are specialized in breeding, raising and fully training miniature therapy horses. Therefore our breeding program is centered on producing foals that are extremely social and people oriented, calm, resilient and excellent learners. We also offer fully trained therapy horses for sale.
Our miniature therapy horses work with great success in horse assisted therapies with autistic children, disabled people of all ages and the elderly.
MagicEquus miniature therapy horses go through a very extensive, approximately one year long, training program. This specialized training teaches the horses to remain calm and relaxed in all sorts of situations and environments, preparing them in great detail for all the different type of contexts they will work in.
In addition, our therapy horses also learn specific skills such as: peeing on command (this prevents indoor "accidents"), placing their head at the edge of a bed in response to the petting of a bedridden person, putting their head in the lap of sitting people, walking up and down stairs (normal sized minis only, not micro minis) etc.
All our horses are trained using scientifically proven training methods based on positive reinforcement. This guarantees that the horses remain mentally healthy and truly enjoy working.
