The Therapy Ponies were a big success at Eastwoodhill Care Home.

Residents at Eastwoodhill Care Home enjoyed a special visit from therapy ponies Pippette and Skipp, from Gatend Equestrian in Ayrshire.

One resident in particular, Alice, was overjoyed. She loved cuddling into Pipette.

Alice said seeing the ponies made her so happy.

Another resident Morag enjoyed brushing Skippy and taking Pipette a walk around the garden.

Both ponies where so calm that staff even took Pipette into see Noreen who was in her bed.

Therapy events are hugely beneficial to the residents.

The home fundraises for such events, and will be holding a summer fete in the grounds of Eastwoodhill on Saturday, June 23, 1.30-3.30pm.
