Tiny Trotters Therapy Horses of South Carolina
 By Winniefield Park   •   7th May 2019   •   2,246 views   •   0 comments


Horse’s and ponies have been helping humans for a very long time. In fact, they’ve been useful enough that we’ve kept them around despite their being extinct in the wild. But, in recent years, equines have become more than just ‘beasts of burdens’. Many, like Tiny Trotters Therapy Horses of South Carolina are helping kids and seniors have fun, learn and relieve stress.

Their owner is a former nurse who created Tiny Trotters to bring joy and unconditional love through the cute antics of the minis. Wearing cute costumes and performing tricks such as jumping through a hoop or turning the pages of a book, the Miniature Horses create an entertaining and safe experience that brings smiles all who visit them.
