Pippin MidAmerica Miniature Therapy Horse

7/31/2017

Pippin a miniature therapy horse with MO-KAN Pet Partners, recently visited patients and employees at MidAmerica Rehabilitation Hospital. Pippin likes to be groomed and play with his mini friends but he also enjoys bringing joy to the patients and employees he visits. He joined in and made the rounds with all of the employees as well as got right in the middle of a PT group session and he visited patients during therapy in our large IP gym. The handler also took him around to patient rooms for those individuals that were unable to come out and see him. Patients were anxiously awaiting his arrival as were our employees. One patient mentioned how she used to ride horses when she was young and how great it was for her to be able to be up close to a horse again. It was awesome!  Pippin is making a return visit in a couple of weeks.
