Tender Little Hearts was conceived as an equine therapy outreach program for children and adults.  We aspire to create an environment where every horse is given a purpose to enrich a human life, bring joy and comfort, and leave every person with a reason to smile.

This corporation was organized exclusively as an assisted equine therapy outreach for children and adults. Tender Little Hearts Mini Tales and Equine Mini Therapy provides the promotion of literacy services and reading encouragement for children as well as assisted therapy activities for children and adults with special needs, development issues or disabilities, veterans with PTSD or are in need of emotional relief therapy, homes serving abused or at-risk children, foster homes and centers, Hospice, hospitals, skilled nursing care facilities, senior care centers, memory care facilities and more. These services include the use of a qualified miniature therapy horse or miniature therapy donkey and handler.
