We Can Change Lives.

Little Hooves & Big Hearts is a nonprofit organization founded by horse lovers who want to make a difference. Our principal mission is to help children with special needs improve their physical and emotional well-being through interaction with miniature horses. We also offer equine-assisted support to parents and caregivers and work with seniors residing in nursing homes and assisted living centers. Conducted by accredited and caring facilitators, our interactive sessions with the minis are tailored to the specific needs of each client, and we make every effort to create a safe space for all who visit us in Oracle. Among the many benefits provided by our equine-assisted therapeutic programs are the following:

  • Increased muscle strength, joint mobility, balance and coordination
  • Improved communication and perceptual skills
  • Enhanced self-confidence and trust
  • Stronger connections to the physical world and to other people
  • Lessened feelings of loneliness and dependency
  • A clearer path to healing and recovery
