Horses helping patients with therapy at Madonna

Good News Notes:

“Horses Jack, Rascal and Tonto stopped by Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital Wednesday afternoon to bring smiles to patients and staff.

‘It’s just great to be able to get our patients outside during this difficult time,’ said Kristin Luethke, Recreation Therapist at Madonna. “Letting them see the horses, getting outside and get some fresh air it’s important.”

The animals are with Windsong Equitherapy which is a Lincoln nonprofit that helps people with disabilities use horses for therapy. Due to social distancing the patients weren’t able to pet the horses, but they could do therapy with beach balls.”
