Liberty company offers pet therapy of a different kind

LIBERTY — Pet therapy usually includes trained dogs and cats that interact with older adults in order to foster socialization, increase alertness, and encourage physical movement.
Active Day of Liberty is bringing in a four-legged friend of a larger variety as a part of its therapeutic programming for the medical adult day care clients.
Supreme Dolly, a quarter horse from Dreamcatcher Foundation Quarter Horses visited Active Day of Liberty on May 17.
Courtney Roberson, owner of Supreme Dolly and Wanda Cartee, Dreamcatcher Farm’s owner and trainer, brought the horse to the center so that the clients could pet the horse, learn how to brush her, clean her hooves, watch them bridle and saddle the horse.
Active Day was excited to have Dolly visit the center. Pet therapy provides a multitude of social, physical and emotional benefits for clients.
