We are an all volunteer organization, and without our volunteers we would be nothing. They show up early and do what needs to be done for the safety of the mini horses and the clients. MiniEncounters is grateful for their help and gives them a big THANKS!
Mini Encounters is located North of the Dallas Ft Worth Metroplex. We are a recognized 501(c)3 non profit organization providing group and one on one sessions with trained mini therapy horses to nursing homes, rehabs, traumatic brain injury rehabs, veterans, home hospice patients, really anyone with a need. MiniEncounters will come to your location or we can arrange a farm visit.
We use the mini horses in many ways for various therapies at each facility. The reactions we see are wonderful. The residents and the mini horse interact with each other for great results...to build results thru therapy for cognitive thinking, problem solving, speech therapy, retention of knowledge and socialization.
Providing this service is from our heart but we do have expenses to maintain the health of our mini horses. Expenses include annual medical and dental checks, semi annual and annual shots, farrier visits every six weeks to keep their hooves in balance and trimmed, grain, hay, and gas to get to visits. Our biggest expenses are the special liability insurance and cost of gas to take the minis to onsite locations. Any donations made in kind or monetarily are gratefully accepted and appreciated.
