Hearts & Hooves miniature horses and guardian therapy dogs go into facilities providing emotional and spiritual healing to everyone they encounter.
Hearts & Hooves, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing interactions with animals that lead to healing smiles and joy. These encounters bring humans and animals together in a magical way.
We have literally ‘opened the barn doors’ to work with people in a variety of life circumstances.
Hearts & Hooves from a Miniature Horses perspective:
Our passion is working with our human volunteers, who we guide to the people who need us the most. We get excited about where our next adventure will be and what amazing people we will encounter along the way. We can be found in a variety of settings, such as classrooms, hospice, elder care communities, hospitals, special schools and mini more. To learn more check out our "About Us" section.

Like any other good Texas ranch, the Hearts & Hooves ranch is in constant need of maintenance and improvements in order to provide a safe and comfortable environment for our animals.
These projects provide excellent opportunities for a teambuilding or group activity.
