Hope’s Promise Ponies Spread Joy at Cheshire Home!
Cheshire Home kicked off the New Year with a visit from one of our favorite ponies, Michelangelo! Our friends at Hope's Promise Equine Assisted Activities Programs have visited Cheshire Home for many years. Their sweet ponies, typically sporting the cutest sneakers, give residents the opportunity to interact in pet therapy.
Medical science shows that interaction with a therapy animal can reduce blood pressure, promote physical healing, reduce anxiety, fatigue, depression, and provide emotional support. Our residents have made many memories during their visits and cherish their special interactions with the therapy animals that visit Cheshire Home. It’s certainly a treat when we are visited by the ponies from Hope’s Promise!
We are so thankful to Hope’s Promise for making an impact at Cheshire Home. To learn more about Hope’s Promise, visit http://www.hopespromisefarm.com/.
