Minis Out, Moving On

 

Specially designed for children and youth programs where there is transition:

  • Visiting Children and Families Dealing with Homelessness

  • Bringing Minis to Children, Youth and Young Adults in Transition 

 

The Minis Out, Moving On program consists of various Step-Up Projects:

 

  • Meet and Greet – meeting the minis and learning about them.

  • A Mini Reader - specially designed bio books with each working mini, fun facts and horse activities given to each child, youth, teen or senior following the first visit.

  • Leading a Mini Horse – leading a miniature horse on a double lead with a mini-handler. 

  • Obstacles of Life agility - a portable agility course created by our horse experts and owners. The portable agility course is used with our At-Risk kids and teens based on age. Easier for younger, harder for teens. Staff, therapists, counselors are on hand at our facilities when we use the OOL - frustrations, break-through, anything is possible as it encourages listening, teamwork and "just try" attitude.

 

Note: This program has licensed therapists, social workers and staff on hand during every visit. We offer special opportunities with minis and special needs kids to help them enjoy the program too.

 

Facilities where the Minis Out, Moving On program has been a huge success:

 

  • Austin Children’s Shelter

  • Helping Hand Home

  • Settlement Home
