Residents at Riverside View Care Home in Darlington welcomed Poppy and Blondie for a wonderful pet therapy session last week.
Pet therapy can help residents to relax, and Poppy and Blondie certainly had the desired effect.
Claire Westmorland, Home Manager, explains: “These two beautiful little ponies brought a smile to our residents’ faces. They enjoyed giving them treats and getting up close and personal with their very own prancing ponies. We’ll definitely be booking Blondie and Poppy in for a return visit.”
