NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- Magic...it's a fitting name for this gentle carousel miniature therapy horse coming to Nashville. Magic is in town visiting the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital tomorrow (Wednesday) at 9:30am and then the Nashville Public Library on Thursday at 2pm for a children's reading program.
The therapy horses of Gentle Carousel visit 25,000 adults and children each year inside hospitals, hospice programs, assisted living programs and victims/families of traumatic events.
The non-profit charity has visited with children and first responders of Sandy Hook Elementary and tornado survivors in Moore, Oklahoma. Magic has been named "One of History's 10 Most Courageous Animals" by Time Magazine and received accolades from the AARP.
