Therapy Pony Visits Richmond Northampton

On Thursday 4th August we had a visit from a Therapy Pony called "Magic".  Magic is specially trained to visit Care Homes and Hospitals to give animal therapy to everyone he meets.

Magic arrived in Reception and then went into the lift to our Care Home and visited everyone in either their rooms or in groups in the lounges.

The reaction we got from the residents was amazing. A resident said "that it made his week
and is family would never believe him when he tells them there was a pony in his room".

Magic then came back down to the reception area and greeted all our Village residents before
heading home.
