Upcoming Soul Harbor Mini Horses at MSJ – February 2024

Two mini horses at Mount St. Joseph

In February, the cottages will be having an hour of
play time with the mini horses in the gym! During
this time, they can pet and tag along with the
horses around the gym!

Please come and consider volunteering for these events!

  • Saturday, February 3rd – St. Clare and St. Joe
  • Saturday, February 24th – Guanella/Marcellina and Sacred heart

The benefits of the mini horse therapy visits is that
the human-animal bond is a mutually beneficial and
dynamic relationship between people and therapy
animals that positively influences the health and
well-being of both.

While many of us intuitively understand the benefits of positive interactions with animals in our lives, an emerging body of research is recognizing the impact the human-animal bond can have on individual and community health.
