Little Horse Makes Children Happy – level 3

02-11-2021 15:00

Ten-month-old miniature horse Honor visited young patients well enough to meet him in person at a hospital in New York. Many others watched from their rooms and isolation units.

Non-profit Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses planned the trip of the 81-centimetre horse, as it sends tiny horses to boost the spirits of youngsters in hospitals across the United States.

The executive director from the non-profit explained that horses are herd animals, so they are very intuitive of what other members of the group are doing, needing and feeling.

Difficult words: tiny (very small), boost the spirits (to make happy), executive director (the ‘boss’ of a company), herd (group).
