News: ‘Tiny horses from Gainesville head to grieving Newtown’

That’s the headline from a story published yesterday on about Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses.

Four equine from the Gainesville-based organization who will be working with children, families and first responders of last week’s tragic school shooting.

Says Horse & Country TV, “Gainesville’s Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses provide therapy to more than 18,000 adults and children each year. It is hoped that the miniature horses can help the children and their families come to terms with the shocking events on 14 December when a 20-year-old man killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook school before killing himself.”

Here are a couple videos of the horses doing their work with children and the elderly:
