Heartland Mini Hoofs is a special type of animal assisted program that serves the needs of many Central Illinois residents.  We love to meet new friends at Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities, Alzheimer's Units, Schools and other wonderful places.  Our handlers bring two or three miniature horses to visits personally with each resident, including bed bound residents, students and other community members.  Typically a visit last an hour or more.  Everyone is encouraged to actively engage with us, pet us, and most importantly love on us!
