Encouraging healthy relationships.

What is My Little Horse Listener?

We believe equines can make a difference.

Treat them with kindness, and miniature horses will give you their hearts in return! Miniature equines have a unique ability to be patient, comforting, and playful companions. They show children and teens how to have and be a friend.


The equines at My Little Horse Listener accept us as we are, hearing pain, sensing struggles, and helping us discover the best within ourselves.

Because everyone deserves to be heard.

What do we do?


We connect members of our community, local programs, and other non-profits with our team of miniature equines.


In collaboration with our partners, we develop equine-focused activities that meet the needs and developmental goals of the participants. 


Participants build relationships with our miniature equines by fostering the skills required to maintain healthy relationships.


We witness and encourage the personal and interpersonal growth of our participants. This may be a growth of self-esteem, awareness, confidence, self-regulation, or simply, the joy of being present. 

Our Story
