Miniature therapy horses clip-clop into retirement homes, hospitals and schools as part of Mary Rose Gullet’s Honey’s Mini Therapy Adventures (https://minitherapy.org). No matter where in Florida the tiny herd travels, they wear their Cavallo Hoof Boots (https://www.cavallo-inc.com) to protect their feet during visits.
Thirty-two-inch tall, “Honey,” is the miniature horse who started it all. Gullet says people are excited to see the miniature horse–and are mesmerized by the sparkly, cute little boots.
“Our favorite part about the Cavallo Hoof Boots has to be the responses we get from the responses from the residents and patients that we visit,” she says. “You can hear her coming down the hallway and as soon as we turn the corner into their room, you can hear them gasp and just say ‘oh, I thought I heard a horse and look at her cute, tiny little shoes.’ Everyone cannot get over how cute Honey’s little hoof boots are. They really add a whole extra touch to each visit that we go on. From your senior care communities to the students that we meet in schools to the doctors that we see in hospitals. Everyone —of all ages— can really connect to the fact that there’s a tiny horse wearing shoes in their facility.”
Honey and her herd mates wear their Cavallo CLB (Cute Little Boots) wherever they go.
Gullet now travels to schools, retirement homes, and hospitals with a full team of miniature horses.
CLBs are available for miniature horses and ponies with hooves measuring from 2 ⅜ to 4 inches and are available in black, bling, metallic blue, and unicorn pink color options.
