Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses is an award winning 501(c)(3) non-profit charity celebrating almost 25 years of service. Teams of tiny therapy horses bring their special love to thousands of adults and children each year.
The therapy horses were called in to comfort survivors and first responders of the mass shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC and the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, FL. They helped the tornado survivors of Moore, OK, victims of the fires in Gatlinburg, TN, families in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, families and first responders after the building collapse in Surfside, FL and visit thousands of patients in children’s and veterans hospitals across the country each year.
The horses work with medical professionals in oncology units, intensive care units and with occupational, speech and physical therapists. As part of treatment teams, the horses support patients who have suffered strokes, traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, amputations and burns.
There are many ways to support Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses… from donations to volunteering, sponsoring the work of an individual therapy horse or purchasing a needed supply from our wish list. You and your friends can help these little heroes bring their love where it is needed most!
