Ponies wow residents at New Copford Place care home

New Copford Place care home in Colchester, run by charity Friends of the Elderly, recently welcomed some very special visitors. Thanks to Magical Miniature Ponies, two ponies visited the home to spend time with residents and their relatives.

Donna Owen, Manager at New Copford Place, said: “It was wonderful to see the residents interacting with the ponies. Everyone was just so surprised that we had real life ponies actually inside the home. The team from Magical Miniature Ponies were brilliant telling us all about the ponies and the sensory benefits and stimulation from being around these animals was something we saw last with our residents for days. Everyone is still talking about it!”

Lollipop & Tinkerbell to Travel to Care Homes

Our lovely miniature ponies Lollipop & Tinkerbelle will travel to Residential/Care Homes even going in lifts to visit residents who are unable to leave their rooms. They are gentle and affectionate and the residents love interacting with the ponies and there are smiles all round.

 

The ponies wear special tabards to prevent any little accidents left behind which gives everyone peace of mind. Ponies are known to offer therapeutic benefits to the vulnerable , elderly and very young.

 

They are intuitive and respond to the emotions of the people around them. The ponies also enjoy the visits as they get the occasional piece of  forbidden cake or biscuit.
