Half-Pint Heroes tiny little therapy horses are a huge hit in and around the Kansas City Area. We visit schools, hospitals, nursing homes and anywhere we are needed. As a retired teacher I have begun visiting schools talking about the book Pumpkin's Story! Pumpkin was a miniature horse who was born with crippled legs. With a great deal of love and determination Pumpkin learned to walk. During this assembly the book will be briefly touched on as well as the message of never stopping when things get hard! The most exciting part is that at least one miniature therapy horse will be standing there during the entire program. Students will have the opportunity to make connections, ask questions, receive a trading card of a miniature horse and pet the horse also.
