Reading Time: < 1 minute

A hipporehabilitation horse for touch therapy bends its head to a patient in the garden at Karel Boromejsky Sisters of Charity Hospital in Prague, Czech Republic, 21 July 2020. Special trained horses for this touch therapy from citizens’ association for hippotherapy Caballinus regularly visit patients in follow-up and palliative care at the Prague’s Karel Boromejsky Sisters of Charity Hospital since March 2020. According to medical staff, horse touch therapy significantly improves the mental state of these patients thanks to emotions, experiences and activation, and this hospital is the only one in the country to offer it.
