Touching Smiles Equine Therapy, Inc. is a 501(c)3 recognized nonprofit organization that brings miniature horses to children and adults. Through direct contact with these wonderfully perceptive creatures, we see increased self-esteem, self-awareness, and self-control. It has been shown that animal-assisted activities can improve physical, emotional, cognitive, and social skills for those with special needs. Interaction with the minis of Touching Smiles brings joy to people in nursing homes, other healthcare, and educational facilities.
