Best Things Come In Small Packages
Our recent partnership comes in horse form, as the Hub has paired up with local non-profit organisation Lofty & Co. Not to be confused with a pony, Lofty and his friends are miniature horses and are perfect pint-sized pals that travel around Yeovil and the surround areas, offering animal assisted therapy.
Our trainees were left star struck as Lofty has become somewhat of a celebrity recently, fronting a recent campaign celebrating the 70th anniversary of the NHS. You can watch the video here. youtube.com/watch?v=vH4W9NOq38Q
By supporting Lofty & Co, the Hub is able to offer trainees the opportunity to learn about welfare, exercise and grooming, whilst also benefiting from the calming affect the animals can have.
Lofty is joined by other animals including sheep and chickens so our trainees really do get a taste of the farm lifestyle!
You can learn more about Lofty & Co by visiting their Facebook page here facebook.com/LoftyTherapyHorses , or for more information on the Hub Programme and what it is able to offer.
