Paternoster House care home, in Waltham Abbey, was full of animal magic on Thursday 11th April, 2024 when Toy Horse ‘Ted’ and American Miniature ‘Bryn’ trotted in to surprise the residents.

Residents at Paternoster House were super excited to see their new little pony friends roaming around their home as the team from Idyllic Celebration Ponies paid a visit.

Activities Coordinator; Sandy Phillips said: “Today has been so very special for all our residents, the ponies put a spring in all our steps! My activities colleague and Waltham Abbey Town Mayor; Shane Yerrell was on hand to give them the star treatment welcome they deserved.”

General Manager Corina Popescu said: “Our residents have really enjoyed their unusual visitors today. It was a wonderful surprise and such a generous gift from Hollie and the team. Our residents loved all animals, the enjoyment and therapeutic influence animals can have on people is immediate, meeting Ted and Bryn today put the biggest of smiles on all our faces.”
