Nervous traveler? Miniature therapy horses to visit local airport

Nervous travelers will now be able to pet and play with miniature therapy horses at a local Ohio airport.

Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport is bringing mini therapy horses decked out in Derby attire this weekend during the 143rd Kentucky Derby. Seven Oaks Farm Miniature Therapy Horses work to "provide mobile therapeutic services to children and adults through equine-assisted activities leading to positive mental, emotional and physical benefits."

The horses will be at the airport from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday. The program launched last year, and the horses will visit the main terminal to greet passengers.

The airport said the therapy horses are part of CVG’s push to make travel a positive experience. The horses will now visit the airport twice a month, and future dates and times will be announced at a later time.
