Healthcare Professionals

When healthcare professionals and horses meet up in the corral, that’s when the magical healing begins!

Amazing Mini Miracles offers healthcare professionals a fun and nonjudgmental environment to help heal medical and emotional pain. The experience and lessons learned through hands-on horse interaction are powerful for all ages and disabilities, both through our mobile visits throughout the community and our corral visits.  We offer fun and light-hearted scenarios that help with life’s skills, encouraging confidence, patience, mindfulness, creative thinking, and being a good listener, to name a few.  Our miniature therapy horses are adorable, and they take their job as therapy horses seriously!

How do you get a horse to move when it doesn’t want to move?

How do you set safe boundaries – and keep them?


Ahhhh, here’s where the therapeutic fun begins. Whether working on emotional pain or medical issues, the fun and aha moments are never-ending.

Here are some examples of what we have observed during corral visits. And as you read these examples, understand that the magical ingredient is that all horses need a leader. The therapeutic value of these lessons learned in the corral is powerful because each lesson is specifically written for each individual, and it’s about that individual’s stumbling blocks, that individual is now the leader and writes their own lesson plan as they emotionally grow. The healthcare professional will be delighted to help guide the leader as they watch the emotional growth with every visit. The human-horse bond is healing and helps open doors to release pain and embrace inner strength.

Another main ingredient is that horses have natural inner compassion and empathy. They accurately read every body movement, every nonverbal signal. The importance of mindfulness, staying focused, and learning the importance of healthy boundaries and proper assertiveness is an obvious example for anyone to remember and incorporate into their personal life.

Meet Sam and Polkadot

This is Sam and Polkadot. They share an incredible bond between them. Sam takes the time to spend more than just ride time with Polkadot and chooses to develop a deep cross-species relationship by just being with each other. Together there isn't much this duo can't accomplish if they put their minds to it.

While Sam has taught Polkadot many things, like trusting people, Pollkadot has taught Sam how to understand boundaries, how to communicate better than before and so much more!

This video shows how the two safely play together.
