Mission

Lifting Spirits Miniature Therapy Horses mission is to provide mobile equine assisted activity services to children and adults of all ages and abilities.
Research has shown that equine therapy has positive mental, social, educational, spiritual and physical benefits.
We use our own trained miniature horses, to bring happiness, hope, and a sense of wellbeing to men, women and children of all ages and needs.

Goals

We are a federally recognized non-profit 501(c)3 and with the help of your donations it will allow us to get to more facilities and create new programs.
We are hoping to expand this year, and be able to double the number of therapy visits we currently have, as well as create more programs.

How We Serve our Community

We currently serve over 45 nursing homes, Alzheimer Units, children’s hospitals, medical centers, schools, and Assisted Living centers on a regular basis.
Visits, which go from April through October, last approximately one hour, and each facility plans these visits based on their individual needs.

During the school year, we bring our miniature therapy horses to participate in school functions that aim at lowering student stress, and encouraging dialog
between the teachers, counselors and students they serve. For example, we have visited the Reading Public Library during Exam Cram Night.
We also visit with Golden Hill Elementary in Haverhill, MA with six special needs classes where the children interact with the horses
and work on building certain skills.

We are excited to be making visits to Soldiers Home in Chelsea, MA so that the veterans can meet our little horses and experience their wonderful benefits.
My father, a marine who served this country, taught me to always give back to the community, so this is something very dear to my heart.
