For almost 20 years, miniature therapy horses have been providing emotional support to thousands of people across the country. The tiny animals have helped survivors of natural disasters and gun violence as well as people who have come from troubled homes.

Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses, a volunteer-run organization, has rescued many of the minature horses — with more than a few of these animals coming from troubled homes themselves.

Once the tiny horses are nurtured back to health, they are placed with people who need therapy.

Size matters not one bit when it comes to the joy these miniature horses are bringing to others. Though the animals are small, their hearts hold tons of love for people who could benefit from it.
