What you'll do

The experience and activities with Happy Hooves may slightly vary depending on the time of day.

*** If you are in a group of more than 1 person, but will be joining us, watching form the same device (computer/tablet), please be sure to only make a reservation for 1 person. We want to be able to provide an experience for 10 unique groups. Thank you!***

Guests can be a part of the routine chores, while learning about all the different adorable animals and their unique personalities! You will also learn some of the interesting facts about miniature horses and donkeys as well as playing some trivia throughout the hour!

We have rescued our horses and donkeys from numerous places. We will also talk about the care, maintenance, and requirements when you own a miniature horse/donkey and all that is involved.

Discussing the benefits of equine (horse/donkey) therapy will also be a topic of our experience, while sharing some stories of how or therapy program (Happy Hooves) benefits others in the community.

As time permits, we may do some brushing, apply their fly treatment (I call their "make-up"!), and possibly even take them into their training ring to show you some of their tricks!

I am the founder and chair of the non-profit "Happy Hooves". We are an organization that provides horse and donkey therapy to those in need. From Alzheimer's and dementia, to stroke patients, to children with autism and special needs, as well as those suffering from depression and PTSD. Having grown up on a dairy farm in Minnesota, (relocating to Arizona in 1999)I have always had a passion for animals. I have shown many cattle throughout my young life and have a passion to give back to the community. This organization allows me to do just that. Most all of our animals are rescued, and the most recent two have come from a kill pen from Texas. Sharing this experience with others, teaching them the gift of healing from horses and donkeys, is truly something I love!

What a great experience. You can see the love and passion Jesse has for his animals and for the service he provides others. I loved being brought into to his world and see the personalities of each animal. Such a unique experience. I also loved the opportunity to share this experience with others from around the world. Thank you Jesse for sharing the love!

What a way to start the day! My online experience with Jesse was amazing. I learned so much from Jesse about the Mini Horses. He was knowledgeable, friendly and considerate. His passion and love for his animals is apparent. This was way beyond of what I expected. I will visit his farm soon. Many blessings Jesse!

Awesome experience for my family....Total of 8 kids on the call and they we're all interested and engaged. Note we live next to my fathers horse farm where the kids are actively involved with similar animals on a daily basis and they were still happy to learn and engage with new animal friends. Thanks so much for giving us and your animals such wonderful care! Atheson
