WABC-TV: Pony Power Therapies

August 18, 2016

In what has become an annual highlight of summer, HackensackUMC is connecting pediatric patients and their families with the benefits of Pony Power Therapies.

Pony Power, a nonprofit organization in Mahwah, NJ, provides therapeutic riding and other horse-assisted activities to special needs and at-risk populations. Nestled in the foothills of the Ramapo Mountains, pediatric patients ride, feed and groom horses; learn about farming and beekeeping; and decorate rocks that leave a lasting imprint on the path to the garden.  Stephen Percy, M.D., acting chairman of the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s hospital explains about the benefits of this unique program.
