Meet the Team

We have a team of four miniature horses that enjoy making new friends and traveling to new places. Our horses work for pats and hugs. They also like to surprise you by showing up in costumes!

Poppy_Cropped

Poppy

Unicorn

Poppy is 5 years old and was bought from a breeder and miniature therapy horse trainer in south Florida. She was originally a service horse for a special needs child, but we purchased her when the parents of this child became unable to care for her.

Jack_Cropped

Jack

Lovebug

Jack is 9 years old. He was bought by a rescue organization from an auction. Although we don't know much about Jack's past, he must have come from a good family as he is well trained and dependable. He is friendly, good natured and knows how to pull a pony cart.

Annabelle_cropped

Annabelle

Cutie

Annabelle was surrendered to a rescue organization by her owner that became unable to care for her. She is two years old. She is sweet and curious and loves lots of attention. She was well cared for by her owners before being surrendered.

Gracie_Cropped

Gracie

Princess

Gracie is a beautiful 6 year old chestnut mare who is only 30 inches tall. She enjoyed a successful show career for several years before coming to the Mane Event. She even placed nationally for her natural talents. Due to her calm and friendly disposition she was recommended for therapy.

About Us

We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to make the world a happier place. Founded in February of 2018, we use trained miniature horses and some of their barnyard friends to bring joy and smiles to everyone we encounter.

There are many ways a person can benefit from spending time with a horse. They can improve a person's happiness, especially for someone facing physical, mental, or emotional challenges. Horses have a quiet nature that can boost spirits, give confidence, provide a feeling of tranquility, and offer companionship for the lonely.
