News 12 New Jersey: Pony Power uses horses to help pediatric patients

August 14, 2015 01:42 PM

A farm in Mahwah is using horses to help pediatric patients.  Some of pediatric out-patients were invited to the small farm to give them and their families a chance to forget about their chronic illnesses. Pony Power Therapies teamed up with Hackensack University Medical Center to help the families battling lifelong and life-changing illness. Some of the kids in the weeklong program have neurological disorders, and others just finished cancer treatments. The Pony Power sessions are funded by a portion of the proceeds from the 2015 Susan Zabransky Hughes Memorial 5K Run/Walk sponsored by the HackensackUMC Foundation.
