SEVEN Points for Picking A Mini Therapy Horse
The biggest complaint I hear from people when buying a mini horse for therapy is that the horses height matured at a much taller number than was anticipated when originally bought.
They also remark that they paid a large sum of money and the mini is barly halter broke.
Many Therapy horses are being sold as babies from 3 to 5 months . Taken off their Momma Only to die weeks later.
This is a horrid practice. Do not buy a mini under 5/6 months old and do not ship a mini under 8 months that is alone.
Some not even halter broke, bought as therapy horses. Frightened and lonely and missing their momma terribly. Some full of worms and bots.
This is becoming common place and we do not want to see these farms turning out baby horses like puppy mills, which is exactly what's happening.
Ranches claim their horses are the best, their training is the best, they are number #1. They are the original.
We will not ship a baby.
What you need to look for.
Always ask for lots and lots of references, phones numbers, talk to the buyers. Not 1 or 2 but several. And remember a baby mini in a hospital all dressed up at the age of 5 and 6 months is not trained. It is just mostly frightened. So please be kind and let these babies grow up before putting them to work.
1-Conformation: Straight legs. Good bite. Excellent body proportion.
2 - Temperament: All around gentle personality. No bite. No kick. Loves people. Loves children. No fear. Courageous.
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 33 inches and under. 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 but there is always the exception to the rule. A well exercised miniature horse is alway what we strive for to keep his mind sharp and his body healthy. Kind of like us!
5-Basic Obedience Training: Ground manners. No spook to loud noises or sudden movements. No bite. No kick. Compatibility with 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. Our certification is much stricter than most.
7- Attitude: The attitude of the working therapy horse must be a positive experience for all. Especially the horse itself.
A horse that enjoys the work welcomes the day.
Their height could go from 15 inches to 33 inches or more in two years. Baby horses will grow substantially. Top quality certified mini therapy horses forum Faithful Friends can find one that fits your budget and enjoy a fulfilling job with these little miracle workers.
The smaller they are the more they cost. But anything under 33' is very small and allowed in the facilities. Sometimes micro small come with health problems, so don't let the trends dominate our pocket book.
