Mini Horse Therapy

We save horses from slaughter from all over the 

country, ship them here, fatten them up with lots of love and kisses and then train them to become therapy horses throughout the San Diego County Hospitals.  As seen on Fox News. We are well known throughout the San Diego hospitals and have a great reputation. We also have very well bred world class miniature horses that are not able to be shown due to personality or size. These little fellas are just what we need in a therapy horse, docile and mellow with a well known lineage of good health. Ask us about our line of World Champion minis. We would be glad to make an appointment for you to come and meet some of the fabulous Therapy horses ready to go to their new home. Schooling available for the novice that wants to get into the Therapy Horse Business...call 619-735-8872 for more info.  Also available, beginner minis that you can train your self for therapy. Paper and work sheets available with purchase. A non-refundable deposit 

( except for a health issue) is required to hold your mini until payment is received in full.

10 Points for Picking A Mini Therapy Horse

10 POINTS

FOR BUYING A TOP QUALITY

MINIATURE THERAPY HORSE

Top quality certified mini therapy horses can cost up to $20,000. Find one that fits your budget and enjoy a fulfilling job with these little miracle workers.

Our motto here at Faithful Friends is …

‘Welcome to Mini Heaven, where Joy is instant!’

What you need to look for.

1-Conformation: Straight legs. Good bite. Excellent body proportion.

( no dwarfism)


2 - Temperament: All around gentle personality. No bite. No kick. Loves people. Loves children.


3-Size: Certified Therapy horses come in all sizes, from big thoroughbreds to miniature horses. In this requirements list we will deal with miniature therapy horses only. The height for miniature horses to enter a hospital are varied. The largest being 37 inches and down. The rule of thumb is if they can fit into the elevator they can become a therapy horse.


4-Health: UTD meaning up to date on shots. Worming. Foot care. Teeth floating. Coat care. Gelding stallions. Sometimes stallions can perform well but it is recommended to geld a colt as he is always a little tougher to handle in general. A well exercised miniature horse is alway what we strive for to keep his mind sharp and his body healthy.


5-Basic Obedience Training: Ground manners. No spook to loud noises or sudden movements. No bite. No kick. Compatibility to other animals.

6- Therapy Training Certification: Within the Therapy Training Certification pamphlet, we have extreme requirements that are laid out. It is a mandatory training guide that is necessary for graduation of a miniature horse into the field of Hospital Therapy.

7- Attitude: The attitude of the working therapy horse must be a positive experience for all. Especially the horse itself. That means that the horse must love the work. He/She is easy to work with, knowing that a horse that enjoyed the work welcomes the day.
