Pixie & Pickles
Therapy Ponies

Delivering therapy to your home or establishment.

Pixie & Pickles Adventures offers a unique service using Shetland Ponies.

We visit your home or establishment with selected ponies for therapy visits. Our ponies even have special pants to wear so that we can avoid mishaps! Our ponies are kind, gentle and loveable and adore their role as therapy ponies.

So what are therapy ponies and how can they help? 

Studies have shown that human interaction with animals provides many benefits in all age groups.  The presence of animals not only improves a person’s emotional health but also physical.

Horses are known to be sensitive and intuitive and they mirror human emotions.

Horses allow people to relax as they accept everyone without judgement.

Benefits of Pony therapy include: 

  • Lowers anxiety and stress
  • Stimulates endorphins helping depression
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Stimulates memory

Our ponies can visit:

  • Care homes
  • Womens refuge’s
  • Mens refuge’s
  • Hospitals
  • Hospices
  • Schools
  • Private homes

We can also come along to your event! Get in touch for more information.
