Ruby the Therapy Miniature Horse

Ruby the Therapy Miniature Horse
Friday, June 16th
1:30 p.m.

Cornell Estates is welcoming Ruby, a miniature horse, to spend the afternoon with the residents and community members. Ruby is from VFM Miniature Horse Farm which is owned and run by Linda and Gerald VanFleet with help by their daughter Katie Hansen. VFM Miniature Horse Farm is located in Hillsboro, OR and has been breeding and showing miniature horses since 1993.

Miniature therapy horses are just like full-sized horses in terms of personality, preferences and intelligence but are more accessible to those who need the support. While a large horse can be intimidating, a miniature horse is easier to trust and befriend. Anywhere that people could use the kind of pick-me-up bestowed by a calm, empathetic, 2.5-foot tall, stuffed animal-like creature, these horses are visiting. Miniature horses very existence makes the world a happier place.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call Cornell Estates at (503) 640-2884
