Miniature horses to work the hospital halls


HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) – Some horses will soon be galloping down the hallways of local hospitals.

Four miniature horses are taking classes to become certified therapy horses in hospitals.

2 NEWS caught up with them at the Sit, Stay n Play Dog Park in Huber Heights.

They train with therapy dogs to learn how to interact with other animals.

Trainers told 2 NEWS it is always a fun experience when the mini horses show up at a patient’s bedside.

It’s always surprise,” said Bob Wisenberger. “The mouth flies open. Look it’s a horse! You know you hear that a lot. That is the thing, they are not expecting to see a horse.”

Two of the mini horses will go to Dayton Children’s Hospital.

The others will go to Forest Glen Health Campus in Springfield.
