Residents and staff at Holliswood Center For Rehabilitation and Nursing in Jamaica were pleasantly greeted by and hugged two miniature horses over the weekend as part of the Centers Health Care’s horse therapy program, aimed to bring smiles and happiness to faces of residents. The two mini horses, Aiden and Pearl, come from a horse handler based out of Long Island in Old Brookville, New York called Wildwood Equestrian, Inc. and Centers Health Care where they are among the 21 horses at the Horseability Center for Equine Facilitated Programs.

“Our residents are so special and bringing these beautiful horses to them was a special gift,” said Ari Steinberg, Administrator at Holliswood Center. “The smiles on their faces and the hugs they gave to these mini-horses is something I will always remember.”
