Hooves & Healing: Miniature Horses Come to the Library
Posted On: Thursday, November 9, 2023 - 10:32 by Beverly Murphy
More than 75 Duke University and School of Medicine faculty, staff, and students joined the animal assisted therapy group, Stampede of Love, on November 8, 2023. This was an opportunity to relax, de-stress, and share some special moments and photo ops with the adorable therapy horses, Lola and Kiwi.
Stampede of Love is a nonprofit organization that specializes in animal-assisted therapy, with miniature horses as their primary ambassadors of love. These therapy horses, being smaller in size, are perfect for navigating indoor spaces and mingling with people, making them ideal for visits to hospitals, nursing homes, and even libraries!
