GAINESVILLE, Fla. ― They're small and cute with fuzzy manes and click-clacking hooves, but perhaps most importantly, miniature horses are now helping patients recover from illnesses and injuries at Shands Rehab Hospital. Training sessions with Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses are the newest form of therapy at the hospital and have become a staple for patients on Wednesday afternoons. "No one plans to go to rehab," said Andrea Gilbert, a Shands staff occupational therapist. "Life threw a curveball, and now everything is hard. But the horses give (our patients) a reason to smile." An activity session entails a horse and a person working together to achieve similar goals. The pair practices walking over different surfaces, going up and down stairs, and working on focus and balance skills.
