Dog cafes and cat cafes are commonplace, but not often do we get the chance to interact with horses - unless you’re fortunate enough to take riding classes, or are a frequent visitor to the Singapore Zoo and their animal petting corners.
Well, for the rest of us, here’s a rare opportunity to get up close and personal to not just one, but six miniature therapy horses at ION Orchard over 3 Sundays this December 2020 - and it’s all for a charitable cause too.
Read on to find out about The Miniature Horse Sessions at ION Orchard in Singapore!
Organised by social service organisation, EQUAL, in collaboration with homegrown fashion brand, In Good Company, The Miniature Horse Sessions will be held in December 2020 as a means of raising funds for the former.
Just a little background info: EQUAL is a non-profit that helps provide therapy to youths, persons with special needs, families, and elderly with dementia and depression through interaction with rescued horses and cats.
It has been proven that animal therapy can help calm one down, alleviate trauma, and improve mental wellbeing.
Each horse meet-and-greet session for 2 people costs $50 ($25 each), and will allow you to interact and take photographs with 2 of the 6 horses - adorably named Kopi, Milo, Siew Mai, Sayang, Ah Boy, and Ah Girl.
This 2 pax entry ticket can admit 1 Adult and 1 Child or 2 Adults, and will also include 2 free drinks from Plain Vanilla Bakery on top of a $50 shopping e-voucher from In Good Company themselves (usable with minimum spend of $100).
All proceeds from the sessions will be going towards EQUAL for the upkeep of their equi-therapy efforts - from the daily feeding of the horses, to the purchasing of their vitamins, and the running of therapy sessions for the charity’s various beneficiaries.
Do note that children below the age of 3 will not be able to attend. Kids aged 3 to 5 years must be carried during the session, and all below the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Entry to this closed-door event is strictly by reservation only, with limited slots. Pre-book your tickets here.
